Due Procedure  (40 Answers)

Don't laugh please! Met a girl online three months ago who is in Benin and who is a US citizen working there in a UNICEF charity as an accountant. I am bringing her here to Texas for a relationship, etc. She will fly out of Lagos next week to Dallas. I asked her how much money she needs just for personal expenses not the airfare. She said it is required that she have1,000 for Due Procedures with her in case of emergency. She has a US passport. I don't believe this story and it is not the money because I had planned to send her some anyhow but I do not want to be scammed. Is this possibly true? Thanks and again, do not laugh!

Going to Abuja via Lagos


I'm going to Abuja via Lagos in a couple of weeks. I'll be arriving on an international flight into Lagos (LOS) and then connecting on a connecting flight from LOS to Abuja. I have a few questions which I would appreciate your help with:
1. I'm considering Arik Air for the domestic flight. Is it considered a reliable airline? as in on time departures?

2. I want to buy the domestic flight ticket online. How much time should I leave between arriving into LOS and departing from the domestic terminal in LOS? Is one hour sufficient as I only have carry on luggage.

3. Is the domestic terminal attached to the international terminal or do I need to take a taxi? Which taxi is the official one?
