Wike reverses eviction of Carveton Helicopters from Rivers

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, on Monday night reversed the eviction of Carveton Helicopters and its operations from Rivers state.

This follows a mutual resolution of the crisis generated by the arrest and detention of two pilots and 10 passengers for violating Rivers Covid-19 restriction orders.

Recall that Obio Akpor Local Government Area had sealed the company premises and operations following the persona non grata pronounced on Carveton by Wike.

Prof Zaccheus Adangor, the state’s attorney general while reversing the declaration said Governor Wike approved the reopening of the company operations on Monday with apology from the company.

Adangor said, “We have unsealed the business premises of Carveton Helicopters. Rivers State Governor gave the approval. The Chairman of Obio/Akpor Local Government Area was directed to unseal it.

“I have received a call from the company to confirm that their premises have been unsealed. We unsealed the premises on the basis of the apology tendered by the company and their commitment to be of good conduct.”
