The NCAA reportedly imposed the suspension on the chopper over the alleged expiration of some of its papers and spare parts.

The publication stated that the agency intends to conduct vital safety checks on the aircraft’s components, especially some spare parts that are due for replacement.

Meanwhile, the Nigerian government has put measures in place to avert reported plans by criminals to attack some airports in the country.

According to The Punch, the level of security at Abuja, Lagos, Kano, and other selected airports have already been reinforced over the security threat.

Officials of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) told the publication on Wednesday, April 14, that the reinforcement was part of measures deployed to tackle any form of attack by criminals.
