13 March 2017 National
National Security Adviser, Babagana Monguno, has banned the planned helicopter shuttle service from Kaduna to Abuja by some helicopter companies.
In a memo banning the move, Mr. Monguno said in view of the closure of the Abuja airport, air travelers will be required to travel by road or train to Abuja from Kaduna International Airport.
He pointed out that the airspace over the Federal Capital Territory Abuja is controlled, stating that only security flights or those with the requisite security clearance from the Presidency are granted overhead clearance for obvious security reasons.
