Airport fence collapses
Last Monday’s torrential rain in Kano State has led to the collapse of the Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport fence, rendering the airport vulnerable.
The wall leads to Panisau, Kurna Asabe and neighbouring settlements.
Some villagers told this reporter that the rain, which lasted for over four hours, submerged the entire area of the airport.
The villagers called on the authorities to provide a solution to prevent stray animals from invading the runway.
It was gathered that the presence of the Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) Managing Director, Mallam Saleh Dumona, must have prompted the deployment of soldiers to the affected areas to strengthen security.
Dumona was at the airport to inspect and ascertain the level of the destruction.
