    Aviation workers have shut down the Murtala Muhammed Local Airport in Lagos State, leaving travellers grounded with flights suspended.
    It was gathered that the aviation workers shut down the airport on Tuesday morning over the sack of some of their members by Bi-Courtney Aviation Services Limited (BASL).
    The aviation workers under the aegis of Air Transport Services Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (ATSSSAN), it was learnt took positions at the strategic entrances leading to the terminal building as early as 6:00 am.
    Recall that BASL had sacked 37 workers including the union executives. The union described the sack of its members as witch-hunting and willful intimidation.

    They alleged that rather than implementing the conditions of service as agreed with them in 2021, the BASL management had resorted to sacking of its members.
    All flights into and from the airport have been suspended.
