The E54 Bridge of Murtala Muhammed International Airport Terminal One was engulfed in flames during the early hours of this morning, sending smoke billowing into the air. Electrical engineers swiftly took action by cutting off power to the airport’s E Wing in response to the alarming situation.

A statement released by the Director of Public Affairs and Consumer Protection at the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), Mrs. Obiageli Orah Director, confirmed that the fire outbreak was successfully contained at 06:41 am. However, as a precautionary measure, all flight operations within Terminal 1 of MMA have been diverted to the D Wing to ensure the safety and security of passengers and airport personnel.

The official statement detailed the sequence of events, stating, “At 05:29 hrs, smoke was detected billowing from the E54 Bridge, prompting electrical engineers to immediately cut off power to the entire E Wing. The Airport Rescue and Firefighting Services (ARFFS) team responded promptly, arriving at the scene by 05:30 hrs.” Initial investigations suggest that sparks from an electrical unit may have ignited the fire, although a comprehensive inquiry is underway to determine the exact cause of the incident.

“The incident, which had escalated into a fire, was brought under control by 06:41 hrs. Efforts to ventilate the smoke from the building are in progress. In the meantime, all flight operations in Terminal 1 of MMA have been diverted to the D Wing. More details will follow shortly.”
