Rivers State Government has prohibited all nightclub activities, including night-time trading and street prostitution along Abacha road and surrounding streets in Port Harcourt with immediate effect.

“No responsible government should continue to tolerate the open display and solicitation of sexual services, drug abuse and public intoxication that takes place along the streets and public areas abutting some of these nightclubs, lounges and bars by the youths, some, as young as under 14 years,” Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State said while announcing the ban.

Also, the Governor banned street trading within and around Birabi Street, Hotel Presidential, GRA Junction up to Tombia Street, Rumuola Junction surroundings and under the flyover, Rumuogba Junction, Okoronodu Junction surroundings, among others.

Wike also cautioned truck pushers, scavengers and illegal refinery operators who he blamed for the harmful soot in the state.
