Unlawful arrest of Caverton Pilots: NAAPE threatens to boycott flying into Rivers state

National Association of Aircraft Pilots and Engineers (NAAPE), has threatened to direct all pilots both local and International to boycott flying into Rivers state now and post lock down if their members arrested and humiliated by Governor Nyesom Wike are not unconditionally released.

NAAPE in a statement signed by its president, comrade Galadima Abednego while commending the concerted efforts of the federal government in ensuring Nigerians are well protected from the ravaging effect of coronavirus observed with dismay that Innocent Pilots who are on the frontline complimenting government efforts are suffering unnecessary humiliation and harassment for doing a service that is essential and vital to the survival of the Nations economy.

Galadima while observing that it is a fact that the flight was duly authorized by all agencies involved from the point of law, wondered why power tussle between federal and state will override national interest.

“At this juncture NAAPE deems the actions of Rivers state government as an unwarranted attacked on our members is left with no other option than to demand for immediate release of the pilots and an apology from His execellency the Governor of Rivers state failing which we will direct all pilots both local and International to boycott flying into Rivers state now and post lock down,” Galadima stated.
