This closure has made the airport a no-fly/land zone as aeroplanes are not allowed to take off or land in the airport since Saturday, January 4th.

General Manager pf FAAN's Corporate Affairs, Henrietta Yakubu said the decision to temporarily close the runway was a safety measure. She reassured Nigerians that FAAN is committed to the security, safety, and comfort of airport users and passengers.

She said; 
“A joint team from the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria and the Nigeria Airspace Management Agency is presently evaluating the situation. 
“This is with a view to ensuring that the airside is cleared of smoke and restoration of normalcy at the airport.”
