Rivers Governor, Nyesom Wike has announced ‘total lockdown’ of parts of Port Harcourt, the state capital from Saturday.

The Governor expressed displeasure at disobedience of his directives on closure of some markets and other business places to stop the spread of the deadly COVID-19.

He particularly lamented that stores and houses were being converted into markets in clear disobedience of the orders.

He said: “Lockdown will be done in some areas (of Port Harcourt). I will shutdown some parts of the town, indefinitely if need be.”

Wike said he contemplated total lockdown of the state but decided against it.

He vowed to deal with markets, traders and other business owners who disobey the shutdown order, stressing that such business places could be acquired by the state in public interest.
