The official of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, FAAN, Mohammed Mustapha Shuaibu who was beaten to stupor by two Nigerian Air Force officers in charge of traffic control at the departure section of the international terminal wing of Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos last year must have been vindicated afterall.
The FAAN staff, Mohammed Shuaibu, who works at the protocol and passages of the agency, National Enquirer gathered reliably has gotten judgement, in the sum of N50m against the Nigeria Airforce for being battered, assaulted and also violation of his human rights.
