The Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, says the building of shooting ranges is nearing completion at major airports in the country to improve security.

He said this in Abuja Monday at the maiden edition of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, the Airports Council International Africa Security Week. 

Sirika, represented by the Director-General of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, Musa Nuhu, said it was part of measures to train aviation security personnel in the industry. 

He said this was expected to safeguard national and international civil aviation against acts of unlawful interference in limits yet to be recorded in Nigeria’s history. 

Sirika recalled that the Federal Executive Council had recently approved deployment of (K-9) security at airports. 

“We’re currently addressing the challenges related to damaged, incomplete and non-existent perimeter fences at airports because as the first layer of defence, airport perimeters will minimise attacks, prevent incursion and enhance general security” he said.
