Nigerians are angry with Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State for demolishing two hotels for violating his lockdown order.

They described Wike’s action as brazen display of lawlessness and dictatorship.

The governor had on Sunday supervised the demolition of two hotels.

The hotels are: Prodest Hotel, Alode, Eleme, and Etemeteh Hotel in Onne both in Eleme Government local area.

However, Nigerians on twitter expressed outrage over Wike’s action, saying that the governor was simply power-drunk.

A twitter user by the name,  Ochi Damian Ike, said “Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Wike is a tyrant. I hope he will be brought to book. No where in the western world did we see such extreme penalty for flouting lockdown order. Even in African countries. In this time of hunger.”

Another user, Chinda Peculiar, said “I condemn in strong terms the demolition of the hotels by Wike. Where does he derive such powers from? Impose a fine or confiscate the hotel but not demolish it. Nyesom Wike please listen to the voice of reason now before it plays out of hand.”

According to Theresa Tekenah, “The decision to demolish hotels in Rivers state over violation of the COVID-19 lockdown order is extreme and illegal. Gov Wike, this isn’t leadership.”
