Governor Nyesom Wike has warned residents of Rivers State not to ignore the blockade orders imposed by the government in certain areas after the coronavirus outbreak.
Special warnings are not given to the full blockade of residents of the Port Harcourt local government area and the Obio / Akpor local government area because they are currently blocking coronavirus cases.
In a statement issued on Thursday, May 7, Information and Communications Commissioner Paul Nsirim, residents of the above-mentioned local governments were informed that vehicles seized during the blockade will be auctioned.
Members of the public interested in buying such cars were also asked to search for ads in some national dailies.
The statement reads;
“The Rivers Government hereby warns residents of Division 20, Amadi-Ama in Port Harcourt Local Government Area, and Mgbuosimini, Rumueme in Obio / Local Government District to refrain from disregarding government blocking directives.”
“The government will take decisive action against the inhabitants of these areas if they prove to be insolvent again.
Anyone who parades exceptions to letters issued by a governor does so at their own risk, because such permits are invalid.
The Prosecutor General and the Commissioner for Justice have been directed to auction all vehicles that have violated the blocking order.
Members of the public interested in buying auctioned vehicles should pay attention to the details. “
