Nigeria’s Federal Government has suspended the operations of a private jet charter and aircraft maintenance firm, Executive Jet Services, for flouting COVID-19 regulations by flying Musician, Azeez Fashola aka Naira Marley, to Abuja for a concert.

The suspension was conveyed on Monday by Mr Hadi Sirika the Minister of Aviation, during the Presidential Task Force briefing in Abuja.

Giving his brief, Sirika noted that the supposed aircraft which was supposed to be used to fly an Appeal Court Judge, Justice Adefope Okogie from Lagos to Abuja, but was inappropriately used for conveying Naira Marley.

The minister said the Executive Jet Services has been suspended indefinitely, adding that they will not escape the arms of the law.

He assured that more stringent regulations will now be put in place to ensure that there are no loopholes in the aviation sector.
