The federal air marshal was reportedly attacked by a subject while on the public side of the Lagos Airport on Sunday. The allegation was contained in an alert from TSA’s Transportation Security Operations Center distributed throughout the agency yesterday afternoon. (Monday 8th September 2014)
“The [air marshal] reported that the subject stuck him with a syringe and it is believed he was injected with an unknown substance,” the alert says.
Below is Fox News report:
The State Department responded to the airport to assist the air marshal and his team.
“After consultation with the consulate and physicians, the [federal air marshal] was given precautionary medication,” according to the alert.
The air marshal and the rest of his team–along with the syringe used in the attack– were immediately flown out of Nigeria and back to the U.S.
The syringe also was transported back to the U.S. for testing.
