Governor Nyesom led some security operatives to the operational base of Caverton Helicopters in Rivers State, as he demanded from the airline’s pilots why they were flying in people into Rivers state despite a ban on such.
Recall that in a state-wide broadcast few days ago, the Rivers State Governor announced the closure of air, sea and land borders into the state with effect from Thursday, March 26. He said the move was to further check the spread of coronavirus in the state.
