Its better,coz to be forewarned is to be forearmed.
Atleast Lagos and other parts of the country should learn from Abuja.

The ordinary man is always receiving the brunt of every action.Gone are the days when heavy presence of the army used to cause panick amongst civilians & reassuarance of safety at same time.This days BH have reduced them to civilians in uniform! I pray we experience a turn around in this country.

Why do we do things in opposite ways in Nigeria. Must you make people suffer before protection can be sure? Oga ooo, you have soldiers there for security reason, which is fine. But why do you have to cause them pain. Trekking with luggages?

This is madness, why must citizens pay for errors made by government. The government is a big joke, instead of getting advance gadgets and training dogs to protect the airports, they are making life miserable for passengers. Will they say they have security threats than most airports in the world? All they want to do is embezzle funds, I always feel sorry for MM1, I was departing in February for LA, and the heat in the lobby was unbearable, the government always make us pay for their misdeeds and that's pathetic... Imagine military at the airport, hian.... And the annoying part is the government know what to do asps BH, but they won't because of selfish interest......

Kiddy Diddy said...

Is that precautionary measure?

MY TURN said...

Rubbish this is Nigeria's intelligence... to block roads and inconvenience people

Godstime said...

I believed they are surveillance.boko haram are terrorizing the country so people need to be protected

Anonymous said...

All these attention seekers like Dele Momodu... when Boko haram strikes the Airport now he will be the first to scream poor security. Yet you have military presence to ward off any attack he will still complain. What does he want? We shd be ready to sacrifice our comfort it that it what it will take to fight terror.

Nigerians should stop being ridiculous. They do trek for miles in foreign airports without complaining. They should allow the soldiers to do their job. They may have credible evidence that boko haram is planning to attack the airport and so are doing everything possible to prevent another ogogoro drinking idiot from driving a golf car laden with explosives into the airport. So, Dele Momodu and co should do the trekking and shed some weight while they are at it.

We can never satisfy human beings! Something's gotta give to provide good security biko nu. If dey no de, we go complain, de don com now, we still de yarn. We can't eat our cakes and have it everytime. Dele please follow your mates and trek. You sure need it and quit complaining. And there is a co-bus to convey you to the car park if you wish!

Which one is making life difficult for people? Since when did walking kill people? We Nigerians are so lazy. Yeah I understand the dragging of boxes but we need to be extra careful this time around. If e happen now, we all will blame the security operatives. Please let's cut them some slacks mehn!! Abuja bomb blasts should be an eye opener to everyone. So make dem jack dia boxes for head de move nwayo nwayo till we all know what's going on in this country.

It's not a funny site at all, am presently at the International Airport and passengers are made to trek up the hill of a road with their luggages while some others missed their flight.

Must we complain about everything? B4 nko, life won't be easy with d havoc Boko boys are raining! Let d army do their job! Let's be patriotic for ones! With joining hands, we can fish out these guys! That's y America is different! Masses helped fish out the perpetrators of Boston bombing! Linda Ikeji use ur blog to advocate for this! Impact d youth with the write information and lead them right! So that history can at least remember u! America has series of crowd shooting challenges but they all unite wen it comes to terror but hell NO in Nigeria! We give the bombers exactly wot they want by shouting crucify Mr. President...so they will keep bombing! U are giving them what is called morale! To keep doing this damn evil! ...

Its necessary. I'm landing in Nigeria next week and i'd rather walk for two miles with my luggages then get blown to pieces by some savages. People need to learn that there is no comfort in security, ask the people that have to deal with the annoying TSA agents in American airports. Beef up the security!

Don't mind insatiable Nigerians. If something goes wrong now they'll complain about the security. Find out the reason before complaining....maybe they were trying to prevent something coz I doubt they'd just go there to harass people unnecessarily.

2day was hellish! I was tempted 2 take pics buh I was 2 frustrated! We had to queue 4 almost an hour just 2 enter the shuttle bus from the new car park to either arrival or departure! To get to the car park sef no be joke! I havn't suffered the way I suffered 2day inna long tym! God help our nation!!! I asked some ppl there dis question: isn't it easy for boko haram members to come and bomb the busy car park were ppl were stranded? N someone said: guess wat? They are prolly trying to safe guard the airport arrival n departure building and not necessarily the citizens! 2 sad I tell u! 2 sad! N sum1 will tell me 2 come back 2 dis country n ill gladly come back?
