No Air Peace flight landed in Calabar -Ayade’s aide

Cross River State government has dismissed as untrue, news of alleged Airpeace flight carrying 35 Americans or any other flight making a purported landing at the Margaret Ekpo International Airport.

Dismissing the report, Special Adviser to Governor Ben Ayade on Media and Publicity, Mr Christian Ita, in a statement said: "While there was indeed a curious arrangement to have the flight come to Calabar, His Excellency, Governor Ben Ayade, however, refused outright to allow the airline fly into the state in line with his order to restrict flights as well as other cross border movements on land, air and sea."

Ita said the Ayade  administration cannot compromise the safety of its citizens,  no matter how tempting the prospects.

He said the purported airpeace flight never came to Calabar.
