SERAP drags Wike to Court Over Illegal Demolition of Hotels in Rivers state

Human rights group, the socio-economic rights and accountability project SERAP has vowed to drag the executive governor of Rivers state to court over the illegal demolition of two hotels in the state for allegedly flouting a lockdown directive.

In a tweet on Sunday evening SERAP stated that the executive order signed by governor Wike is an act of human rights violations.

The statement reads:

BREAKING: We condemn the reported demolition of Prodest Hotel by Gov Wike, Rivers State.

Using COVID-19 to perpetrate human rights violations is executive rascality & Mr Wike must stop this now.

We’re taking legal action to hold him & his govt. to account for illegal actions.

The demolition of Prodest Hotel is forced evictions and in violation of article 11 of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and other human rights treaties to which Nigeria is a state party.
