According to Naij.com, Iyke was arrested after he was said to have assaulted the staff of one of the airlines domiciled at the airport.
The actor assaulted one of the security personnel who attempted to search him after he arrived for a flight. Unknown to the security man, Jim had missed his flight because he arrived late.

News of Jim Iyke's comes after YEN.com.gh earlier reported a near plane crash involving some Nigerian entertainers.
The entertainers including Tekno, Flavour, and comedian Gordons, with their band boys and other colleagues were said to be on their way to Ghana for a show when the aircraft they were on board developed a fault.
In a video sighted by YEN.com.gh, Gordons, who broke the news, revealed that their plane had taken off from the Murtala Muhammed International Airport safely.
But some few minutes into the trip, it was announced that the plane had developed a fault so they had to return to Lagos.
He revealed that he together with his colleagues were all scared and kept praying to God to avert a possible crash.
God, Gordons said, listened to their prayers and so they landed safely at the airport until another flight was arranged for them to fly back to Accra.
