Commissioner for Information and Communications, Mrs Ibim Semenitari, who spoke on the backdrop of the visit of four Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governors from the North, said some of the cars in the convoy of the governors were smashed with stones by the protesters.
She denied reports that the Governors were held hostage by the protesters noting that Governor Rotimi Amaechi got to the airport and had to wait for his colleagues
“What happened at the airport was worrisome. Amaechi waited for all his colleagues. They were not held hostage. The bus carrying the Commissioners was damaged and some other vehicles were smashed by the protesters”, she said.
