24 WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2017 business & economy Three passengers detained for disrupting Air Peace flight Maureen Ihua-Maduenyi T hREE passengers were on Monday detained by security operatives at the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos, for disrupting and delaying an Abuja- bound Air Peace flight for three hours. A source said trouble started when two males and a female passenger identified as Seun, Jide and Abosede complained about seating arrangements close to an exit, and an argument ensued, prompting the captain of the plane to intervene. The source said security operatives were called in when the argument became heated and the passengers refused to listen to the captain. The airline, in statement by its Corporate Communications Manager, Mr. Chris Iwarah, confirmed the incident, saying that the 18:30 Lagos-Abuja service was delayed for three hours and security personnel of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria had to be called in after efforts to get the passengers to back down failed. Iwarah said, “We wish to confirm and set the record straight on the unruly and disruptive conduct of three passengers (two men and a lady) on our 18:30 Lagos- Abuja service on Monday, September 11, 2017. During the pre-departure safety briefing by our crew, the three passengers began to query the seating arrangement of the aircraft. “Efforts by our crew to let the passengers understand that the seating arrangement was as approved by both the US Federal Aviation Administration and FPvW&6ffFWF&GvW&R&V'VffVB( FRB֖6B`FRfƖvBv2FW"'&VfVB'FR7&WrFFW'fVRvFR76VvW'2&VgW6VBF6W&FRvFFR6FFW67FVB'&vpW"VvVW'2&&BF6f&FR'v'FW72`FR&7&gBFR76VvW'0'WBRbFR&W6WF02&VV66FW&VB'FPWV7WFfRf"&RFGvV'2r( 6FW2FR6VFRB'WFV6FPF76V&ǒvPfRFRFRVVFgV'&ffW&r6WF2B0VgBf"FRWV7WFfRFVVBFR&W6WF2( ЦRFFVB( 2vP7FBFFvRfRFP7@7FPfFW&FVf&V@BR6BFWfVfFVFW"F27FPVf&VBB2B76&R&V6W6R'W6W70VRvBFR&fG2( VW72vRBFW6P77VW26W&W6ǒvR6WfW"wV&FVRFRw&wFbvVW&fFv6v6W'fR27W'BFFP&ƖRBFW&V'7&VFR&'W7BV6֖27FV@f"fVVBbvG2@6W'f6W2vW&( ХFRvW"W&W76V@27Ff"FRVpG2vvW&Rf6VB'&W76W72GVRFƖ֗FV@fǖrWW&V6R( FPGW7G'0'VB&R6fWG66FW&FB@'&Ɩ6RW&FVB'琧BvRG&r'&Ɩ6Rfǖr&FW"B27VVFfRW'2`fǖr6WfVB'BFR&RW'2`fǖrB2F07&VFBFRV6W"PvWG2VvvVB'&ƖPvW'2( RFVB( Gf6VBFPG2F6FVRFF@FFV"W'2bfǖpFǒ&62'&VFp&7&gBf"FRW'6Rv6RFVBFVvvVB&RWV6fRvW&( 2fF6V7F"7B7FRFfW7F'2( 2( VR&WwR'V@RFWWG&GVFW"bFR6VFR6VF"&&( GVW6FFW67&&V@vW&( 2fF6V7F"0FR7B7FRFfW7F'2( 6@F0vVFRVFW'6`FRF766Fb&7&gG2G2@VvVW'2f6FVB2ff6P'VFR&W6FVBbR"6"wwRBW&vV@( FW6R266G2FRf6R6&`FR6VFR6֗GFVRfFBfW7F FR6V7F"FRFPF76V&ǒ&VG06V&6ƖvBFR&&V0&VFWfƖrFRGW7G'FRG2BVvVW'06W&vVBFR6VFRFV7W&R7&VFb'2FP6V7F"F&VvVv6FFBvVB7FVFRw&wFFRGW7G''WB( 0&W76R7FFV@F@FRWV7WFfRB@FRVv6GW&R6VB&P&W77W&6VBFW&vVFǐF6RFR&&V2FP6V7F"আP6B( vW&( 0fF6V7F"&VrFP7B7FRRFfW7F'0BFW"WW'2FR7W'&VBF6VFRvFF&VRF2bG06WF#RFV&FV@F76&VB'R&&V2&VFWfƖpFR6V7F"B6RWvFf"&V6r#B@&W6WFFRvWBdrF7VB&7VVgVB&Bg&7G'V7GW&R( 2DWfW&W7BVgVR'V@R&F&vWFVB'FRfVFW&vfW&V@g&FR6֖2&B7VVv&R7VB7&F6&Bg&7G'V7GW&P7&72FR6VG'FRFV'@vVVBff6R06BFPF&V7F"vVW&DFV6R斆6@F2Bf&W27F2bFP&G6r&v6VBFG'V7W'Bf"FR&B66&FrF7FFVV@77VVB'FRvV7'VGVW6F斆w6FRff60bFR֖7G'bvW"v&2BW6rF@7FVFW'2v2'@&6W'BB'VF@FR&v2FVF6FV@F'VFr7&F6&@g&7G'V7GW&R7&72FP6VG'FR6fW&Vv7VV0WF6&6VBfW7FV@v6&VB2&6VBFRfW7FVB&VǐBFR&67V@BFRVBbFR6WfVזV FV"FRD&7277W&V@FVFfW7F'2F@FR7VVv2&6VB'FRgVfFbFRfVFW&vfW&VBBv2R`FRfVVW2F&Vvv6BFVFVBF&6RgVG2f 6F&V7G2( F22Rb6WfW&Vff'G2F&6RgVG2f 7V6f2&V7G2BF20&6VB'FRgVfF`FRfVFW&vfW&VBF22&VF&GV7BF6FW"f"6VvVG2bW 66WGFB&WV&R7V66W'f6W2( 斆FFVBFR767FBF&V7F"rBFWfVVBfVFW&֖7G'bvW"v&2BW6r"vW&26VV&RfW7FVB'GVFW2vW&@RvW&vW&'W6W70766Fআ27FFVBFBvW&'W6W72vW'2&RVVFfW7BvW&FRF&V7F"vVW&t$"v&VvFV&7FFVBF2vVআRB6W'FW7f6BFFRV6vW&Ɩ֗FV@wV7FFRGVW6FআR6BFBFF0VBFR766Fv0v&rF7&VFR7W&wB&FR'W6W70&VF6&WGvVVvW&@vW&খfW7F'2আRvWfW"FVBF@FR6VvRFBvW&B2fW7FV@FW7FFv0FPW&6WFFB'W6W70vW'2WW&R@&WBFR6VG'FFpFBFR77VW2b6''WFB6V7W&GvW&Rbw&V@66W&2FfW7F'2FV&FVBW@FBFR"v&b0766Fv2FG'@6'&V7BFRW&6WF0vbGG&7Fr&PfW7F'2FFR6VG'66PfW7FV@'vW&vW&FP7BGvV'2BG&V@g&&WB(*F&F2p2(*ÓআR7FFVB( FW&R2@bVFW66vW&琦&WBFr'W6W72vW&'WBFR'W6W70vW'2&R66W&V@&W@FPvVW&W&6WFB7G'V7GW&PbFRvW&'W6W706ƖFR( vPfP&VV6&&FpvF7FVFW'2FRf&W06V7F'2vFfWrF&WfW'6rFRVvFfPvRFBvW&0rf&VvfW7F'2( 6vW&2&PV6W&vVB'FRf7BF@vW&2rVff'G2F&fRG26FFPv&B&V6RbFp'W6W72&涖r( ФFVRƗ7FVB#R&@&V7G27&VB7&72FP6vVƗF6W2bFP6VG'v6FR&7VV6FvVB&RW6V@f"6RbFR&V7G06VFRFRvWF'&FvRGVƗ6Fb6V7FbFR'V&BGVƗ6FbFP7VV֖&B2vV2FRGVwW&&BFW'2&RGVƗ6FbFRԶG6&@6R &V&ƗFF`FPG6VVwPW&W77vFRVVwRХ'B&6W'B&B6V7F2BFRGVƗ6FbFR&FԖ&&@6V7F"GVFPF`6F&RbFP6VVBvVG2v7RgFW"FRf'7B6W76W&W76VBF֗6FP7VV( F00Wp&GV7Bv6V0Wr'GVFW2WpfW7FVB6fFV@FBBvFvV6RvFFW"f67G'VVG07V62FRdt&B6fw2&BBFRFW'0FBFRD2v0WBffW"( Rv2VFV@26r&VVfG2bfW7FrFR7VV66&FrFFRD6VFR6fWG&VwV"BFg&VR6RBƗVFG2Bv&PƗ7FVBBG&FVBFPvW&7F6W6vPBFRdED06V7W&FW2W6vR2vFffW"f"7V'67&F6FVBf"FW'6Fখ67FVBFBFR&7&gBv0V6fRBvVB7VffW"FPfFRbRFW"FW7F0&ƖRv6P&7&g@7&6VB6RV'2vFPV'Vǒ76VvW'2&WfVFV@W"7&Wrg&6FVpvFFR6fWG'&Vfr( ЦR6BFBFW 76VvW'2&&BFPfƖvB&V6R&VV6fPB67FVBFRV'Vǐ76VvW'2&VrFVf`FRfƖvBBFRB@66RFF&WVW7@FBFWF6V&&'W@FR76VvW'2&VgW6VBF6ǒVFrFFR@6Ɩrf"FRFW'fVFbFR6V7W&GW'6V`dगv&FFVB( FP76VvW'26&VgW6V@F&Vg&g&FV F7'WFfR6GV7BWFRFW'fVFbd6V7W&GW'6VgFW &WBF&VRW'>( FVGvbFRF7'WFfP76VvW'2WfVGVǒw&VV@FF6V&&vRFRGrFVv2FB6Rǒw&VVBFF6V&&WFW"76VvW'>( FW'fVFgFW"FVpFRfƖvBf"7BF&VPW'2FF( FRF&VR76VvW'0vW&RWfVGVǒFVf"FW'&vF'd6V7W&GW'6VvFW G&6fW'&V@FVЧFFRƖ6Rf"gW'FW fW7FvFvR6f&ЧFBFR&7&gN( 26VFp'&vVVB22&fV@'&FFW7F2@FW&FfFWF&FW26VFrFP4BdB6Ɩ6RvFv&&W7@&7F6W2FRfFখGW7G'( vRvRv6FVPFG&VBW"fVVBwVW7G0vFFRw&VFW7B&W7V7@B6W'FW7vRvWfW rF֖&G`7W7FW'2FV&F6RFP6fWGB6f'BbW 7W7FW'2BFRfW&6fRW&FbW"fƖvG2( Фv&6BFR6FV@v07W'&VFǐ&VpFG&W76VB'FRF( 06V7W&GvV6W2
