Rivers State Government has confirmed 27 new cases of Coronavirus with Manager of demolished Prodest Hotel, Eleme, listed among the new cases.

Rivers State Commissioner for Information and Communication, Paulinus Nsirim, who made the disclosure Sunday evening said the development validates the State Government’s proactive fight against COVID-19.

Nsirim recalled that

“Protest Hotel was demolished two weeks ago because the owners violated Executive Order 7 which banned the operation of hotels.

“The COVID-19 Taskforce members from the Local Government who went to enforce the Executive Order were brutalized and dehumanised leading to the death of one of them.”

LIFESTYLEGIST reported that the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike supervised the demolition of two hotels in the state for violating a lockdown order of the state government.

While he ordered the construction of a primary school on the land when one of the assaulted COVID-19 task force member lost his life.
