Effiong, who is in his early 40s, slumped at his duty post at the Lagos airport’s approach radar in the early hours of Monday, November 22, Daily Trust reported.
According to an airport source, the deceased slumped but could not be brought to the hospital due to vehicular limitations near the Total Radar Coverage of Nigeria (TRACON) station.
“Before they could get a vehicle and rush him to the hospital he passed on. I wish to appeal to the authorities particularly his immediate constituency NAMA, the magnanimous Minister and DG NCAA to please come to the immediate aid of his young family with the hope also that he will be compensated adequately to encourage others,” the source said.
The source added that;
“While doing all these, may I appeal that the restriction of vehicle to the TRACON site be reviewed immediately while stress test carried out on the surviving ones. I humbly submit and seek for prayers for God to forgive his shortcomings and accept him in his bosom.”
The air traffic controller Aniekan, was a Nigerian Airspace Management Authority official (NAMA).
