According to her, the notice was pasted on the wall of the company’s building without any further information.

“It was one of the security guards who saw it and out of curiosity, he brought it to my office. When I saw it, I was surprised that a 48 hours demolition notice was served on us."

She went on to disclose that DAAR Communications has instituted a court action against the Rivers State Government to stop the demolition of the building.

Akerele advised the government to wait for the decision of the court on April 6, 2023, when the case will be heard.

Her words:

“I just want to appeal to the Governor to have a rethink if not for owners of Daar Communications,PLC, but for over 80 percent workforce that are sourced from the locality of Ozuoba, host community. We have been in good relationship with them. We have been doing everything humanly possible for the community as company.
“The matter has been taken to Court. We believe that in an idea situation there shouldn’t have any action because the case is already in Court. Hearing of the case has been fixed for the 6th of April."
