The Nigerian military has foiled another attempt by bandits to kidnap aviation workers in the staff quarters of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) at Kaduna Airport.
This recent invasion comes barely two weeks after the bandits stormed the airport to kidnap a staff and the entire members of his family.
The Nation reports that the foiled attempt on Sunday morning came with a serious gun battle between the bandits and military personnel who swiftly moved to the scene.
A source who spoke with the publication said the bandits gained access into the quarters through porous sections of the airport airside leading to runway 23 /05.
On gaining access to the quarters, the bandits were reported to have headed straight to their alleged target flashing touch lights to locate their way to his apartment.
But, a distress call prompted the intervention of the military, who engaged the bandits in a gun duel forcing them to escape.
Being gripped with fear following the recent development, workers in the junior and senior quarters of the airport are leaving the quarters to look for secured accommodation outside the airport environment.
