Security operatives at the Murtala Muhammed Airport 2, Lagos on Thursday detained an Italian woman, Lilian Abdulrahman for hours after she refused to let her bags to be screened.
Abdulrahman who is married to a Lebanese was detained by officers of the Nigerian Police Force, Bi-Courtney Airport Security and the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA).
The woman arrived Lagos on an Aero Contractors Airline flight from Abuja around mid-day Thursday.
It was gathered that upon arrival, she was alleged have prevented the Bi-Courtney officials from screening her bags which is a standard aviation protocol.
Abdulrahman was alleged to have insulted the officials before she dragged her luggage out from the Arrival Wing to a waiting Honda.
This prompted the aviation security to alert the policemen attached to the airport who prevented the car from leaving the premises until the bags were subjected to screening.
This attracted a large crowd at the scene.
However, after several hours of argument, the bags were eventually searched and nothing incriminating were found.
Abdulrahman later tendered an apology to the Bi-courtney officials before she was released.
