Low turnout of passengers was witnessed at the Murtala Muhammed Domestic Terminal 1 Airport, Lagos, on Thursday, the second day after the resumption of flight operations in the country.
Flight operations were halted in March, to curb the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.
Our correspondent, who visited the airport, observed that only a handful of passengers were seen.
However, security was tighter than before, as security officers of the Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), turned back individuals who do not have serious engagements.
The departure area was also restricted to only travellers.
Cars were checked to ensure that occupants wear nose masks, while people on foot were directed to the main gate, to explain their purpose of visiting.
One of the security officers told Newsbreak, that the unusual scrutiny is to avoid unnecessary movement of people, due to COVID-19.
Taxis waited endlessly for customers at the arrival section during the period that activities were observed.
