The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has temporarily shut down the E-Finger departure screening point at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA) in Lagos state.
FAAN stated that the point closure is temporary to enable them to carry out some routine maintenance on the screening machines, NewsGuru.com reports.
General Manager, Corporate Affairs of FAAN, Henrietta Yakubu made this known on Tuesday.
Yakubu said the development was part of a maintenance and upgrade program.
FAAN appealed to passengers and other airport users to bear with them as it hopes to reopen the area soon.
“Consequently, all human and cargo movement have been temporarily diverted to the D-Finger screening area until the maintenance and upgrade is completed,” Yakubu said.
