Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers’ state has asked the state’s Attorney-General and Commissioner of Justice to auction all the vehicles that were impounded by the state for flouting its stringent lock down directives.

A statement by Paulinus Nsirim, the state commissioner for information and communications reiterated that Rivers State would deal decisively with residents who disobey the state’s regulations.

“Government will deal decisively with the residents of these areas if they are found to default again,” it said. “Anyone parading exemption letters except the one issued by the Governor is doing so at his or her own risk as such permits are invalid.

“The Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice has been directed to auction all the vehicles that violated the lockdown order.

“Members of the public who are interested to buy the auctioned vehicles are to watch out for details in The Sun, The Nation and Vanguard Newspapers.”
