The Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority has threatened to wield the big stick against airlines flying into restricted areas in the country.

The aviation authority said this after it received a letter from the Office of the National Security Adviser, reporting a sighting of an unknown aircraft flying over the presidential villa.

As a result, the NCAA warned Airlines Operators in Nigeria through a letter sent to them.

The letter read partly, “The Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority wishes to refer to Part of Nig.CARs which states that ‘No person must operate an aircraft in a prohibited area or in a restricted area, the particulars of which have been duly published, except in accordance to the condition of the restriction or by permission of the State over whose territory the areas are established.”

The letter further stated that such violations shall be liable to sanction, persecution or both by the authority.

The NCAA further stated that the intruding aircraft might risk being met with dire consequences.

The authority in the letter stated that all aircraft owners and operators should advise their crew to obtain thorough weather before the flight and adhere strictly to air traffic control instructions to avoid flying into restricted or prohibited areas.
