Air Peace counts losses as airport manager disrupts operations
Air Peace airline has disclosed that it has lost millions of naira as a result of the disruption of its Enugu airport operations, for over two hours which it termed ‘sabotage’ by Mgbemena Orjiakor, the current Enugu airport manager. Speaking to journalists yesterday, Chairman of the airline, Allen Onyema, said yesterday morning, its operation was shut down by Orjiakor over N7 million debt, which the airline showed proof to have paid.
“I got a call this morning that the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, (FAAN) stopped our operations in Enugu over N7 million debt, which we have already paid. The airport manager did not go back to check his books to know if we actually paid or not but hurriedly stopped our operations, a situation that is costing us millions of naira,” he said.
