No doubt, the aviation sector, under the leadership of its Minister, Stella Oduah has been undergoing a huge transformation, as many Nigerians have been made to believe. But the incessant crashes and flight hiccups experienced at some airports, have marred the aesthetical reforms embarked on by Oduah and her team. The nation's airport services, according to findings, have still remained very bad and worse than before.

Daily, Nigerians still go through dehumanising treatments in the hands of some airport officials. Nigerians are even better treated at airports in other countries than in their own fatherland. What an irony?

Information reaching from an eye witness account reveals that men of the State Security Service (SSS), on Friday, November 16, 2013, arrested a top Lagos-based journalist, Tunde Moshood, well known as TM, just as he arrived Nigeria from abroad. The respected journalist was nabbed at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos at the Arrival Hall.

According to what a passenger at the airport, who recognised him and informed us about the ugly development, the pen-pusher, who returned to Nigeria on board a Lufthansa Airlines flight from Germany at about 6pm, was trying to capture a leaking roof of the airport when the SSS grabbed him and whisked him away, threatening to deal with him.

"Tunde Moshood had barely took his camera phone to snap the leaking roof when some men, who identified themselves as SSS officials approached him and whisked him away. They threatened him, saying he would be taught a big lesson. He was even telling them that he is a journalist, because they didn't recognise, but they were undeterred and insisted in teaching him a lesson of his life" the eye witness narrated to us.

We were further informed that the security officials detained him as threatened, but was later moved to an unknown destination. As at the time of publishing this story, the whereabouts of the journalist was still unknown. Efforts to track him have proven abortive.

Also, efforts by to contact the General Manager, Corporate Communications of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), Yakubu Datti proved abortive as his phone number was not reachable.
