Keyamo Reveals Extortion At Airports To Be Eradicated



The Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Festus Keyamo, has said that agencies engaged in extortion and begging at Nigeria’s airports are beyond the ministry’s control.

Keyamo stated this in a post on X on Sunday, that he has been working with other ministers responsible for these agencies to find a solution to curb the problem.

The minister’s statement came in response to numerous complaints from travelers about these activities.

“I have received several complaints about the menace of begging and extortion at our International airports by a few unscrupulous persons who give all of us a bad image,” Keyamo said.

“My phones are beeping every minute with messages about this from well-meaning Nigerians.

“Just to set the records straight, most of the agencies involved in this menace are not under the control of the aviation ministry, though they are stationed at our airports.

“However, I have been working closely with other ministers, arms of government and agencies who are responsible for these agencies and a solution is in sight soon,” he stated.
