A security guard attached to the Kaduna International Airport has been shot to death by suspected bandits.
The victim, Shehu Na’Allah, is a staff of the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA).
Airport manager Amina Salami said that the ‘bandits’ invaded the airport through the perimeter fence from a nearby forest at about 1 pm on Saturday, and started shooting to scare the workers.
She, according to Channels TV, further explained that a security guard with the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA) who was patrolling around the runway was shot dead by the bandits.
The airport manager also disclosed that loud gunshots attracted the attention of armed security operatives who arrived at the scene and were able to repel the ‘bandits’ from gaining access into the main airport complex.
The attack also delayed a scheduled Lagos-bound aircraft from taking off from the Kaduna airport, while armed operatives of the Nigerian Airforce and other military personnel have taken over the innards and outer areas of the airport to fish out the bandits.
