Nigerian perv scanners lay Lagos ladies bare

Operators ogling passengers 'for fun'

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Security officials at Nigerian airports are using perv scanners to ogle female passengers "for fun", according to a report from This Day.

The 3D body imaging kit - installed in the wake of the Xmas Day Farouk AbdulMutallab (non-) exploding underpants outrage - protects the identity of the scanee by blurring the face.

However, machine operatives have devised a cunning method to cop an eyeful of unsuspecting females - simply nip outside the scanner monitoring room to clock the passenger queueing to enter the machine, then rush back in to admire her assets.

This Day observed in one airport how, just to make absolutely sure they're kept entertained, operators shut down a conventional scanner to prompt passengers to pass through a perv scanner.

A "shocked" Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria official told the paper: “It is a breach of privacy. I will deal with it immediately I return to Lagos.”

Nigeria currently has two functioning full-body scanners in Lagos airport, and one in Abuja. In the former, US-bound passengers travelling with Arik Air and Delta Air Lines are subjected to the e-strip, while it's obligatory for all international passengers leaving Abuja. ®
