According to a video posted online in the early hours of 24 February, Super Falcons are crying out that they have been locked inside Abuja International Airport for no reason.
The falcon who made the video could be seen crying out that they need to be released as they do not understand why they are trapped in there after 5hours even after conducting COVID-19 tests.
