just to update you on a few potential scams I experienced this week when visiting MMIA in Lagos.
After immigration and baggage, a woman in uniform was standing by the airport exit and asking passengers to show their passport. I showed mine and she asked where was my yellow fever certificate. This went on for a minute or so. There is no need to show a yellow fever certificate or anything like that on arrival in Nigeria, so I just grabbed my passport back and exited from the airport. If this happens to you, do the same, or just dont hand over your passport, and walk on past her. These people are just trying to get some cash out of unwary foreigners.
I used my airport angel card to access the SDS lounge on the ground floor. The staff told me that 'Nat West has contacted us and said that these particular cards are no longer valid'. Again, they just wanted a bribe. The lounge was empty. I walked out telling the staff they should be ashamed of themselves. Please dont use this lounge. This sort of behaviour by people at the airport gives Nigeria a bad name.
