The Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has ordered a thorough investigation into an alleged theft at the Benin airport.

It was reported that some equipment meant for the instrument landing system was stolen a few days after installation.

Obaseki gave the instruction after a meeting with officials of the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency, (NAMA), the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) and the airport authorities after an assessment tour of the facility.

He said that the unfortunate incident will not deter plans to upgrade services at the airport.

The state governor is making out plans to ensure that the airport operates 24-hours before the harmattan season begins.
