The Federal Airports Aviation Authority, FAAN has accused the DSS boss, Mr Safiyanu Abba, of slapping an airport security officer at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja.
This was disclosed in a series of tweets on FAAN Twitter handle this afternoon.
According to FAAN, on July 17, a passenger had walked through the metal detector and activated the alarm. The DSS boss allegedly stepped in and stopped further search on the passenger and in the process slapped a security officer who cautioned him after he stopped the further search.
The tweet read;
“BREACH OF SECURITY PROCEDURE AND ASSAULT ON AVSEC OFFICER BY HEAD OF DSS AT THE INTERNATIONAL TERMINAL OF NAIA ABUJA
“We note with dismay that Mr Safiyanu Abba, the Head of DSS at NAIA deliberately obstructed airport Security process, and slapped an Aviation Security Officer who was performing his duty by calling on Mr Safiyanu Abba to desist from doing so.
“This happened on the 17th July at about 15:25 hours.
“He breached security procedure by obstructing further searching of a visitor who had just walked through the metal detector and activated the alarm.
