Davido’s aide beats up airport security officials


Security agencies at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos have impounded 17 check-in luggage belonging to  musician David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido in the Nigerian entertainment industry.

The seizure  followed  an alleged  attack  by one of the musician’s aides on Aviation Security (AVSEC), Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) and Checkport personnel at the airport upon his arrival from a foreign trip on Thursday evening.

The Nation gathered that trouble started when Checkport staff at the baggage reclaim area attempted to verify whether  the tags on Davido’s luggage  corresponded with the reclaimed luggage.

But, the enquiry of the personnel did not go down well with one of Davido’s aides who refused to tender the tags and resorted to abusive words against the staff.

What followed,according to sources,was a punch in the face on a Checkport staff by the aide.

A Customs personnel who rushed to the scene also got punched in the face by the aide.

The situation soon degenerated and the security personnel called for reinforcement.

The aide was overpowered and was then taken to ‘Tango City’ a secluded at the airport where unruly passengers and touts are kept  by security agencies.

At ‘Tango City’ the aide reportedly continued his attack on two AVSEC personnel, one of them a female lady who was writing her  report, and the other,a  Customs official who was injured on his wrist.

It was at this point that the attention of Davido who was already outside the terminal awaiting the collection of his luggage from his aide was called to the terminal incident.

Attempt by Davido to get his luggage  released  was rebuffed  by security agents who  insisted on taking the detained aide to Criminal Investigation Department (CID), Panti , Lagos.

The 17 seized luggage were still at the airport yesterday while effort  was being made to transfer the aide to CID, Panti.
