There was a fire outbreak on Wednesday at the arrival hall of Murtala Mohammed International Airport (MMIA), Ikeja which caused airline passengers and others to scamper for safety.
The fire was said to to have been caused by an underground cable, Daily Independent reports.
A Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) fire personnel, who pleaded anonymity, claimed that the fire started around 2 p.m. He said that the fire was however put under control by the fire officers from FAAN.
He added that the fire might have been caused by an underground cable that needed replacement.
Another passenger, Mr Mayowa Olawale, said he was not happy with the officials of FAAN as they failed to address the passengers on the situation.
“We are just stranded here outside the arrival hall. This is unfair because as we speak no official information has been communicated to us as to what is really happening,’’ he said.
Meanwhile on Lagos Island, there was a fire outbreak in the early hours of Wednesday in the popular Balogun market which burnt properties worth millions of Nigeria.
