Abdulsalami Abubakar Returns To Nigeria After Three-months Absence


Security was beefed up in the early hours of Saturday at the Minna International  Airport in Niger State when former Military Head of State, General Abdulsalami Abubakar, returned to Nigeria after about three-month absence.

The entire airport was cordoned off on Friday evening by security agents in anticipation of his arrival but was later postponed till Saturday morning.

However, the security personnel returned to their duty post at the airport early Saturday, and this time around ordered everybody out of the airport as they took different strategic positions to ensure that nobody enters the airport.

Aside from very few vehicles believed to be that of close family members, nobody, including newsmen was allowed into the airport.

At exactly 09:33 a.m., a Nigerian Air Force plane with registration No. 5NFGV conveying Abdulsalami and 12 others touched down at the Minna International Airport.
