Total Lockdown In Port Harcourt City Begins Total


Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has announced a 24-hour total lockdown and a dusk to dawn curfew on Port Harcourt and Obio/Akpor Local Government Areas of the state as part of the state government’s  measures to check the spread of the coronavirus in the state.

Wike in broadcast, yesterday, said, “Consequently, we have decided on the extreme measure of placing the entire Obio/Akpor and Port Harcourt City LGAs under a 24 hours total lockdown from May 7, 2020, until further notice.

“With the declaration,  all residents of Obio/Akpor and Port Harcourt City LGAs must stay at home.

“On no account should there be any vehicular movements or gathering of more than two persons in these Local Government Areas, except those on essential services with appropriate authorization.

“All shops, trading or business activities, including currency exchange, in these councils must also remain closed until further notice.

“All landlords are advised to ensure that no shop or trading activity is opened or carried out in or around their premises or risk the confiscation of their property by the government.

“Any person, group or institution that violates the lockdown and curfew in these councils will be made to face the full wrath of the law.”

He directed the immediate arrest and prosecution of Chief B. Worgu and Mr Isaiah Abraka for sneakily organizing night markets in defiance of existing ban on such activity. Wike said given the threat posed to the state by oil and gas company workers, it has reviewed all entry waivers and permits earlier granted to oil and gas companies.

He said, “From now on, requests for waivers and entry permits from oil and gas companies will be considered on a case by case basis;  all inward-bound vehicles and flights into Rivers State from oil and gas companies with workers for crew change or other essential operations must first submit details of their manifests to the State’s taskforce on COVID-19 for proper vetting of their virus status before they can be allowed to enter the state.

“All operators of chartered flights into Rivers State for oil and gas operations, especially Bristow and Caverton Helicopters, should please comply with this directive and refrain from jeopardizing the lives of our people for the sake of making profits.”
