The Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA) has allayed fears over correspondence from a government agency which advised Airports Management nationwide to upgrade existing security measures around the nation’s airports.
The correspondence generated tension and was being circulated in the social media.
The ONSA has however downplayed the correspondence saying it was a routine threat assessment to ensure preparedness of agencies and not meant for public dissemination.
In a statement on Thursday, the ONSA reassured the public and all aviation stakeholders of the safety of our airports.
The press release signed by Z. M. Usman, Head of Strategic Communication, ONSA said that the security and intelligence services will continue to monitor security threats and provide the assessment and timely advise required by Airports Managements to continuously upgrade security measures in the airports.
