The FGN on Sunday said illegal consignments and cash in local and foreign currencies were being smuggled on daily basis in and out of the country aboard private jets. It also said some persons that securities agencies had declared wanted were being airlifted out of the country aboard private and chartered jets.As a result, it insisted that pilots flying such jets must declare the passenger manifest before being allowed to take off. An aircraft manifest contains the names of all persons aboard the plane, among other things. The Coordinating Information and Communications Manager for aviation parastatals, Mr. Yakubu Dati, told reporters in Lagos on Sunday that the order for the declaration of passenger manifest was necessary to check the abuse of the use of private and chartered jets. He said for security reasons, especially the need to arrest those who had constituted security threats to the country, the government would not renege on its decision for pilots of private jets to file their manifests before being given Air Traffic Control clearance.
