Panic As Fire Guts Lagos Airport


 Pandemonium broke out yesterday at the international wing of the Murtala Mohammed Airport (MMA), Lagos when a minor fire outbreak cut off electricity supply at the airport.

The fire incident which happened at the Finger Main Distribution Board, E-Finger of the Airport was reportedly triggered by an electric spark.

A worker at the airport who preferred anonymity said, the minor fire incident caused passengers and other airport users to run for their dear lives as some people assumed it was a major fire incident.

The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) through a statement by its Acting General Manager, Corporate Affairs, Mrs. Henrietta Yakubu, confirmed the incident, saying power was immediately restored.
