Relocate Akure airport over herdsmen invasion – Reuben Abati


Former presidential spokesman, Reuben Abatin has called for the relocation of Akure airport.

Abati stated this in reaction to cows invasion of Akure airport runway on Saturday, hindering flight operations.

The former spokesman blamed those that built the airport for herdsmen and their cattle, calling for relocation.

According to him, relocation of the airport would show a sense of accommodation of Fulani herdsmen.

On his Twitter page, he wrote, “The State of the nation: Whoever built that airport should have avoided the cattle route.

“Relocate the airport to show we are accommodating.”

Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, had earlier applauded Air peace pilot for saving lives of passengers following the incident.
