Quoting ENU (Thread starter):

He wasn't really happy with all the questions and allegations raised. Its normal I guess to ask those questions when something like this that hasn't occurred in the Nigerian aviation sector for a long time suddenly happens. But at least he was able to clarify some of the funding sources.

Arik Air has commenced addition of two direct daily flights from Lagos to Kano and Abuja to Enugu.

Quote:
The airline's daily flights to the two new routes will commence on Friday June 15 from the old domestic terminal of the local airport. With the addition of these routes, the total number of the airline's daily flights is now 46. Kano thus becomes the seventh domestic airport to be served by Arik Air.
The new Lagos-kano route and the Enugu-Abuja route build on the success of Arik Air on other major domestic routes, added Mike McTighe, Arik Air's Managing Director: "The addition of these routes is an example of our commitment to the growth of Nigerian aviation. These are exciting times for us at Arik Air. Our passengers in Kano can look forward to experiencing the New Experience."
Arik Air, which commenced operation in October 2006, operates daily flights to Abuja, Port Harcourt, Calabar, Benin and Enugu.
"As we prepare to take delivery of our brand new New Generation state of the art Boeing 737-700 with winglets, more routes will be added in the coming weeks." Added Tighe.

Still not clear what they mean by 'the old domestic terminal of the local airport', either MMA Terminal 1 (International) or Terminal 2 (domestic: http://www.mma2lagos.com ).
