The Office of the National Security Adviser says its attention has been drawn to reports of a threat on the nation’s airports from an internal government correspondence.
According to the statement, ONSA said that, “the correspondence was a routine threat assessment to ensure preparedness of agencies and not meant for public dissemination.
“However, in the period covered by the correspondence, threat analysis identified the need to advise Airports Management nationwide to upgrade existing security measures around the nation’s airports.
“Regrettably, the unauthorised release of this advisory is likely to raise fear among airport users home and abroad.”
ONSA however reassured the public and all aviation stakeholders of the safety of the airports.
“The security and intelligence services will continue to monitor security threats and provide the assessment and timely advise required by Airports Managements to continuously upgrade security measures in the airports.” It stated
