was performed by Ambassador Robin Sanders. On March 27, 2008 a
ceremony was held to handover the scanners for the Abuja and Kano
International Airports. Since the installation of scanners, the
Abuja and Kano airports have recorded a total of 33 arrests. The
handover ceremony for the Lagos and Port Harcourt International

sophisticated equipment will shut down Nigeria's international
airports to drug courier activities.
