REBUTTAL RE- NIGERIAN PRIVATE AVIATION HANDLING COMPANY, SAHCO WORKERS BUSTED FOR RUNNING MULTI-BILLION NAIRA DRUG OPERATION IN LAGOS AIRPORT The attention of Skyway Aviation Handling Company, SAHCO PLC has been drawn to the malicious report by about how our company is involved in a drug peddling cartel. Let me say without mincing words that the report is FALSE and it is only a figment of the imagination of the reporter. Although, we serve as a gateway to Imports and Exports in Nigeria and we are proud to provide such world class facility in Nigeria, however, our role does not include verification, checking the content of cargo as alleged in this report. It is therefore fiendish and cruel to insinuate we run a drug cartel. Also, we want to make it clear to the public that all Government agencies, NDLEA, DSS, Quarantine, Airforce etc have unfettered access to our warehouse where they carry out their duties without our interference. It is therefore important to note that this is not the first-time suspects will be arrested within our facilities and we always cooperate with the agencies while they carry out their investigation without shielding anyone involved be it our staff, contractor or business partner. As a responsible company, we make available the latest technology to assist Government agencies to fight any form of crime within our facilities and we will not relent in doing that. We hereby advise the public to ignore this FAKE news that is being peddled by saharareporters.
