The government of Enugu State yesterday seized a helicopter belonging to the Aero Contractors for allegedly landing at the Governor’s Lodge without approval.
A source told reporters that the helicopter caused panic at the Government House as workers were said to have...
scampered for safety on sighting the helicopter.
The source added that security operatives attached to the Government House cordoned off the area when the flight landed and arrested the operators.
Chief press secretary to Governor Sullivan Chime, Chukwudi Achife, who confirmed the development in a statement, explained that it took place at about 10.30am when workers were already in their offices.
“At about 10:30am today (yesterday), a helicopter bearing the markings of Aero Contractors landed without permission at the Governor’s Lodge. The mission of the visitors was unknown to the government. After preliminary inquiries, the chief security officer to the governor, Mr Fidelis Ogarebe, handed the three occupants of the aircraft -two pilots and one engineer – over to the State Police Command for further investigations”, he stated.
