FAAN To Deploy CCTV At Major Airports



The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has said that plans have reached advanced stage to procure mobile Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras at the airside of major airports across the country. The agency said that with the procurement of the mobile cameras and improvement on perimeter fencing patrol, the era of airport incursions by unscrupulous elements would be a thing of the past in the industry. The managing director of FAAN, Engr. Saleh Dunoma, disclosed this to journalists on Tuesday, while having a chat with journalists at the Murtala Muhammed Airport (MMA), Lagos.

Dunoma said that the mobile CCTV cameras would cover a distance of seven kilometers and could sight even long distances at night. He also agreed that security had been the major challenge confronting the global aviation industry, stressing that as some of the challenges are tackled, the perpetrators of the act also designed new ways to beat security.

He, however, reiterated the readiness of the management to tackle the menace headlong by procuring latest security equipment at all airports. The FAAN MD insisted that some of the facilities were already procured and installed at most of the airports across the country, but expansion of facilities at these airports made it necessary for FAAN to improve on some of the existing equipment on ground.
