At the time of filing this report, some stranded passengers were said to have left in anger over the development, some bought tickets in other airlines to reschedule their trips while others were in an argument with the management of Arik at the airport for selling them flight tickets even when they were informed on the strike.

The management is yet to give an official statement on the matter just as the COVID-19 protocols makes access to the airport difficult for newsmen.
