Two hotels in Nigeria's Rivers State were demolished over an alleged breach of the coronavirus restrictions, as footage filmed on Friday shows.
Rubble and debris were scattered around the area where Edemete Hotel and Prodest Home stood before their demolition on Sunday, May 10.
Authorities alleged that people who had tested positive for COVID-19 were residing in hotels across the state. It... Еще was unclear whether those patients had stayed in either of the two hotels.
The managers of both hotels, who have been arrested, denied the businesses were operating and claimed public officials demanded bribes to keep the premises open.
The Rivers state government denied the accusation.
