10 Types of people you will see at Nigeria's International Airports

In Nigeria there are 5 international airports namely Abuja - Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Enugu - Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Kano - Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport, Lagos - Murtala Muhammed International Airport and Port Harcourt - Port Harcourt International Airport.


The Nigeria International Airports are always the busiest airport in the country. It’s always open for business 24 hours daily and every time, you go there take a look around, there are different types of people you will. Join me as I unveil these different types of people. I personally fall under one I will tell you when we get there.

The late comer

In everything you must see late comers so the airport is not exceptional. They always believe it’s better to be late than never. You see the late comers run into the airport with their luggage and Ofcos they usually create havoc at the check-in counter when you don’t let them in. When cutting the queue did not work you see them trying to bribe the airport staff.

The pervert

Every airport has a pervert not just the international airports alone. I call them sidon the look. They usually sit and stare at people inordinately possibly making lewd gestures. And also they have they eyes glued to a pornographic magazine or watch a porn movie loudly without minding the environment. They are the type that also ask crazy questions and starting unnecessary conversation.

The tourist

This is my category. You can identify them by the way they dressed. Most times you see them wearing fur coats, winter jackets or flowery shirts, depending on the destination they are heading to. They are always concerned about their destination and above all they are the best travellers.

The celebrity

The celebrities, both the local and international celebrities pass the international airports on a regular basis. When we talk about celebrities we include those that false themselves to be a celebrity. You usually see those wearing sunglasses, always demanding special attention and someone carrying they bag

First timers

These sets of people are novice and clueless. They don’t know where to go, what to do and they have no idea what is going on. They look nervous and keep asking a lot of questions. You see them going around the airport looking lost. I was once in this category and even some of you reading this post and it’s always good to help them with information that will help them.

The Parents

These set of passengers usually have a baby or children. You often see them looking exhausted from struggling with marshalling the children. Sometimes passengers feel sympathy for them carry their baby.

The business man

They usually look co-operate and take a lot of phone calls. They usually let everyone know how important they journey are. You no normally it’s not proper for passengers to answer phone call but you see them yelling into a phone over some dilemma after the flight attendant has asked everyone to switch off their mobile devices

The gadget slave

This is my category again lolzzz. I can’t stay idle without touching my gadget. Normally you see these passengers with earphones plugged in their ears, and always pressing their computer, iPad or mobile phones. Most times they don’t even look around not to talk of interacting with people.

Romeo and Juliet (The lovebirds)

When I call them Romeo and Juliet I guess you know what that means. Those that are always gum together, sit together, feed themselves, and laugh loudly at each others jokes and if you allow them they don’t mind going through security together. Most times, they wear the same clothes, and take endless selfies together. They can even make you uncomfortable.

The sleepers

These set of people they case is in the hands of God. They are always careless; they are not bothered about their luggage being stolen, and some of them even snoring at a public place. They don’t care about things happening around them.
