Firm Flies Into COVID-19 Lockdown Trouble in Nigeria

Two helicopter pilots and 10 passengers fell foul of Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike when they disobeyed a COVID-19 lockdown order signed by the governor and flew into Port Harcourt "illegally". The pilots - employed by Caverton, a company that has logistics contracts with various oil firms, including the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation and Shell - and the passengers, were charged with disobedience to a lawful order.
