Murtala Mohammed International Airport (MMIA) in Lagos, Nigeria, said a lack of trained security personnel has stopped it from using the 3D body scanners purchased for the detection of explosives.

Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) general manager of public affairs Akin Olukunle said the scanners will be used once the aviation security personnel arrives after training.

The system will be installed at the internal boarding gate of the departure terminal to reveal and detect illegal substances, enhance the facilitation of passengers and reduce the time spent on screening.

FAAN has installed the scanners at the airport as part of a security upgrade, following the failed terrorist attack on a Detroit-bound US flight on 25 December last year.
