A Federal High Court sitting in Port Harcourt will on the first of June hear a suit filed by the Northern Community in Rivers State against Governor Nyesom Wike.

Justice E.O. Obile fixed the date to allow the plaintiff put Governor Wike on notice

The Northerner Community are demanding the sum of one hundred million naira for the arrest of their kinsmen including their Livestock and trucks by Governor Wike, which they say is an infringement.

Counsel to the arrested Northerners, Eze Kpaniku while speaking with newsmen lamented the arrest by the Governor, adding that the victims had waivers from the Federal Government.

Kpaniku also alleged that both his clients and their livestock have been arrested and dumped at the Isolation centre without food and medication for over a week.

Leader of the Northern community in Rivers State, Alhaji Musa Saidu on his part decried the arrest and demanded their unconditional release.

Saido said; “Our people who were coming from the North doing their legitimate businesses were arrested with their cows and everything and taken to the isolation centre illegally.

“What they brought were essential commodities approved by the Federal government. Since their arrest, they have not eaten and all their essentials they came with are just there. We were also denied access to see them.

“That is why we have decided to approach the court to seek justice for them. Let the court tell us that what the Rivers state government has done is right when someone has not committed a crime.”

COVID-19: Nigerian airports set for reopening, passengers issued warning Air Peace Boeing 777

The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has said it has put in place arrangements on passenger facilitation, ahead of resumption of flights.

The General Manager Corporate Affairs of FAAN, Henrietta Yakubu, stated this while speaking at an aviation webinar organised by Women in Aviation (WIA) Nigeria with the theme: “Aviation: The New Norm in the post COVID-19.”

Yakubu warned passengers to expect delays and long hours of checks and re-checks from when they arrive the airport until they depart.

She said noted escorts of VIPs would no longer be allowed to follow their principals into the terminal.

“We are going to expect flight delays, flights will experience delays from checks and re-checks. If you are travelling, I will expect a potential traveler to leave home hours before his flight. Why do I say this?

“Because there is going to be a lot of checks in the front of the terminal we have been told that some may activities and procedures will take place in front of the terminal. So air travelers are expected to leave home very early so that they can get to the airport on time,” Yakubu said.
