Ebonyi govt promises security for travelers, after Enugu airport closure


Ebonyi state Commissioner for Works and Transport, Obasi Abara, has assured travellers using the Sam Mbakwe International Cargo Airport, Owerri of adequate security in the state, following the closure of the Akanu Ibiam international Airport, Enugu.

While briefing newsmen in Abakaliki, Abara stated that the measure would last for two weeks.

He said that with the closure of the airport for repairs, the government agreed that citizens travelling by air should use the airport in Owerri.

“The government has decided to take responsibility for the travelers’ transportation and security to and from the airport.

“Government will provide two buses for such journeys with security operatives attached to the hilux vans for the travellers.

“Details of this arrangement will soon be made public as the government enjoins the public to reduce frequency of travelling,” he said.
