Pilots arrested for flying expatriates into #RiversState

Governor of Rivers State, #NyesomWike, on Tuesday led some security operatives to the operational base of Caverton Helicopters in #PortHarcourt, to effect some arrests over the violation of movement restriction put in place to curb the spread of Coronavirus .

The governor also demanded for Caverton’s pilots to be interrogated on why they flew expatriates into the state and ordered the company to produce all passengers they brought into the state.

The Governor was said to be worried that the identities of the expatriates were unknown and had demanded the company to fish them out to verify their medical status.

Wike had signed an executive order closing all land, air and sea borders as part of his numerous measures to contain the spread of the pandemic.
