Hundreds protest at Lagos' Murtala Muhammed Airport 2 (LOS) over welfare issues on August 30; avoid all protests as a precaution

TIMEFRAME expected from 8/31/2020, 12:00 AM until 9/2/2020, 11:59 PM (Africa/Lagos). COUNTRY/REGION Nigeria


Hundreds of employees of the Federal Airport Authority of Nigerian, (FAAN) are gathered at the Murtala Muhammed Airport 2 (LOS) in protest over welfare issues and a planned concession of federal airports on Monday, August 31. Similar protests are ongoing across airports in Maiduguri, Kano, Port Harcourt, and Abuja airports.

Reports indicate that the protests have remained peaceful with no indication of violence. However, traffic disruptions are likely, especially where security forces attempt to disperse protesters. Routes linking the airports are also likely to experience traffic congestion.

A heightened security force presence and localized travel disruptions should be anticipated in the vicinity of the protests.


Those in Nigeria are advised to allow extra time for travel due to the demonstrations and potential delays. Travelers are advised to monitor local media in order to stay up to date with developments relating to the demonstrations and any associated disruption. Travelers are advised to avoid all demonstrations in order to minimize the risk of exposure to potential incidental violence, opportunistic crime, and crowd control measures by the police.
