The threat was contained in a statement released on Sunday by NCAA where it condemned air travellers, who attack airport officials over flight delays and cancellations, adding that they would now be apprehended and made to face criminal charges.

The statement reads in part, “The spate of attacks as embarrassing and discourteous to such affected officials.

“The NCAA warns all irate and belligerent passengers carrying out attacks on airline officials to desist forthwith. Subsequently, any passenger found carrying out attacks on airline officials will face criminal prosecution,” said the NCAA.

“Passengers are not expected to take laws into their hands if and when there are operational hiccups which are capable of truncating air services as all over the world, overbooking, denied boarding, delay and cancellations similarly occur in extraneous circumstances.”
