Security sources at the Port Harcourt airport are however reporting the presence of a group of political thugs presumed to had been deployed by an ex-militant chieftain. “Their mission appears to foment big trouble here,” a source said. Governor Amaechi was said to have remained in the VIP wing of the airport earlier today due to fears of an attack on his convoy.
The governors convoy was eventually stoned by the protesters when leaving the airport. But the governors got to the government house safely.
