Arik Air has confirmed the arrest of two male passengers caught stealing from the baggage of another passenger onboard the airline’s Lagos-Abuja flight on Friday morning.
The airline’s Communication Manager, Mr Ola Adebanji, confirmed the development to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos .
Adebanji said the duo was handed over to the Police after the aircraft landed at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja.
According to him, one of them was caught by a vigilant Arik Air staff while pilfering money and goods from a passenger’s baggage midair.
He said upon further interrogation by the crew, the elderly man implicated another passenger as his accomplice and they were both detained till the flight landed.
“Their plan was foiled because one of our crew was at alert. These things happen a lot on flights because it is a bit difficult to monitor the activities of passengers.
“Our advice is that passengers too should be vigilant and keep an eye on their baggage during flights, ” Adebanji added.
‘It is disingenuous to accuse everyone who calls for restructuring as trying to break up the county. History tells us that that kind of cheap blackmail will not work as long as the underlying reasons for the agitations persist.’
‘The biggest challenge seems to be that we seem to be allowing moderate voices on this issue to be drowned out by the reckless utterances of a few rabble rousers on all sides who may be tools in the hands of those who do not wish this country well. These are some of the people who arrogate to themselves the toga of spokespersons of our diverse groups.’
