The takeover came after a court order, according to the Spokesman of AMCON, Jude Nwauzor, on Tuesday. He did not give details on the takeover.

It was however learnt that the AMCON management Tuesday sealed off the head office of the helicopter firm at Maryland in Lagos,

The AMCON management is expected to appoint a receiver-manager.

OAS Helicopters is among the 10 airlines that benefitted from the over N120 billion aviation intervention funds given a few years ago.
