Passengers are said to be currently stranded at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport 2, as aviation unions have shut down activities at the airport.
The protest by the aviation unions followed an earlier threat over sack of workers by Bi-Courtney Aviation Services Limited.
The shut down of MMIA 2 by the unions — Air Transport Services Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (ATSSSAN), the National Union of Air Transport Employees (NUATE) and the National Association of Aircraft Pilots and Engineers (NAAPE) — is despite a court order restraining them from carrying out their threat to disrupt activities at the airport.
On Tuesday, a Federal High Court had granted an order in the suit filed by Bi-Courtney Aviation Services Limited (BASL), operators of MMA2, restraining the unions from shutting down activities at the airport.
