Passengers protest flight cancellation in Kano
Angry passengers including some Kano House of Assembly members, on Tuesday, blocked the Zaria Road office of an airline to protest the cancellation of a Lagos-bound flight.
The protesters said the flight was cancelled without proper explanation by the airline.
They also noted that the airline only communicated the cancellation of the flight to them by email a few minutes before departure time.
There was top management personnel at the office to address the protesting passengers, but one Bashir Otara who identified himself as a security officer of the airline said the flight was cancelled due to “a technical problem beyond control,” adding that their money would be refunded.
One of the affected passengers was Bashir Anubsjar. He is expected to travel to Egypt through a scheduled flight in Lagos on Wednesday by 10 am.
He said, “actually I don’t know what to do next, because I have budgeted for everything about my trip but look at what this Azman did to us.”
