PHOTONEWS: Stranded Air Passengers At The Lagos Airport As Two Airlines Close Shop
Air passengers remain stranded at theMurtala Muhammed Airport in Lagos on Monday as two airlines shut down flight since last week. The Nigerian aviation authorities "temporarily suspended" the licence of Dana airline last week Friday after an incident in Abuja according to an aviation source.
Also, the Aero Contractors had shut down since last week due to industrial dispute with workers of the airline. Several employees of the airline were arbitrarily sacked over the weekend leading to protests by the aggrieved workers on Monday.
Another set of photos in this stream came from the scene of an armed robbery attack at the same airport last week. Two policemen were killed in the attack.
