It was a business halt for the International airline as activities were temporarily stopped last evening at the arrival section of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA) , Lagos, following the unruly behaviour of some aides of the Nigerian musician, David Adeleke aka Davido.
Kayode who is one of Davido’s aides, became upset and beat up an official at the airport who asked him to produce his baggage tags at the airport today, later beat up officials of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) , Aviation Security (AVSEC) , a department under the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) and a staff of Checkport over an attempt to check the tags on the checked luggage of Davido on an Emirates flight.
Information letter reached us that Davido who had arrived the country through an Emirates flight around 5 pm, had 17 checked luggage, which the aides refused to allow the officials of the Checkport verify with the attached tags.
Crisis broke out when a Checkport staff at the airport attempted to verify some of the checked luggage with the attached tags, but, rather than allow the staff to carry out his official duty, the aide (Kayode) insisted that he would not allow him to verify the luggage, which after much arguments and insistence, led to fisticuffs.
Kayode punched the Checkport staff on the face, which attracted other security officials at the terminal who immediately attempted to arrest the aide.
But, rather than obey, he resisted arrest and pummelled another airport staff at the baggage claim area.
When he seemed uncontrollable, the security officials mobilized and forced him to a restricted area within the terminal known as “tango city.”
Tango City is a place where touts and unruly persons are detained within the terminal before being transferred to a police station for further a possible interrogation and possible prosecution.
