The Federal Government has suspended the operations of the airline which conveyed musician, Naira Marley and former BBNaija housemate, Kim Oprah, to Abuja.
The event which was meant to be a “drive-in concert”, was organised by Play Network Africa, Traffic Bar, El’Carnival, and was sponsored by Glenfiddich.
According to the minister of aviation, Hadi Sirika, who spoke on Monday during the daily briefing of the Presidential Taskforce on Covid-19, the flight which took the singer to Abuja from Lagos was approved for a different purpose.
He said the flight was to convey a judge from Lagos to Abuja and back on an official assignment and that the flight operator violated approval.
The minister said the operations of the flight company have been suspended indefinitely and would also be fined.
He added that the flight captain will also be sanctioned for providing false information.
“Going forward we will escalate the mechanisms we have in place, and we will be stricter in our approvals,” he says.
