woman cries out after her children left her stranded in airport
78-year-old woman cries after her children left her stranded at the Lagos airport
According to Iwuchukwu Benneth, a staff with the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), Ms Benice Ikerionwu’s son was meant to pick her up from the airport but he never showed up and the woman had no money or phone on her, neither could she find her way to her son’s house on her own.
Confused, the elderly lady began crying and a passenger who saw her in distress notified the airport authorities who then tried contacting the woman’s family using the phone number that booked the flight.
They got in contact with the woman’s daughter but she refused to cooperate with them and also refused to give her brothers’ phone numbers.
Iwuchukwu Benneth had to resort to sharing the elderly woman’s photo on Facebook so her kinsmen would come and get her.
