Lagos – The Commissioner of Police, Airport Command, Mr. James Olatunji Caulcrick yesterday said that the Command has arrested and prosecuted about 20 suspects in the last three months for various offences.
Speaking with reporters in his office, Commissioner Caulcrick explained that the Command was taking the issue of miscreants very seriously to ensure that the airport was free of them to ensure safety of passengers at the airport.
He said the Command has doubled its efforts to deal with miscreants by carrying out regular raids, adding that a taskforce was already in place to address the menace of motorcyclists, popularly known as Okada riders, within the airport vicinity.
Caulcrick said security has been beefed up in and around airports across the country especially with the ongoing work on remodeling.
He added that more security operatives have been put on alert with the increase in the volume of passengers at the international wing.
