ABSTRACT

Over the years, there have been persistent and consistent issues bordering on security in the Murtala Mohammed International Airport, Ikeja, Lagos. As an International airport as well as the gateway into our Country, it is expected to measure up to international standards in facilities, personnel, services, security, safety etc but unfortunately most of these areas are atimes neglected and consequently fall below acceptable international standards. This research has been designed to assess and appraise the security system and facilities in the Murtala Mohammed International Airport, Ikeja, Lagos. The study aims at evaluating the security system with a view to identifying and analyzing all those problems facing the efficient and effective security network.

The data obtained were basically on questionnaires, library research, journals and official documents as well as relevant books. The use of maps, graphs and tables also complement the other source of data collection.
After the analysis, it was discovered that the security system of the airport is poor and does not measure up to international standards and therefore should be beefed up.

The problems were identified and array of suggestions advanced for a safer and more secure airport in order to forestall any security breach.
