Aden Ade AirportIn a move aimed at increasing security of the airport, the African Mission to Somalia (AMISOM) Saturday handed over a newly built police station at Mogadishu’s Aden Ade Airport to the Somali government.

 

The opening of the police station is significant in the light of the forced emergency landing by the country’s Daallo airlines flight due to a suspected bomb inside the plane Tuesday.

 

Speaking during the handing-over ceremony, AU Special Representative to Somalia Ambassador Francisco Madeira reiterated the need to reinforce security of the airport, noting that it was a possible terrorist target.

 

On his part, Somali Police Chief Mohamed Sheikh Hamud said the new police station will greatly contribute towards security and safety of the airport.

 

AMISOM Police Commissioner Anand Pillay said there was urgent need to ensure the safety of the airport to bolster confidence among visitors and users of the facility.
