Kano, Niger and Adamawa that came to pay him a solidarity visit could
not leave the Port Harcourt International airport this morning as
protesters rented by forces loyal to President Goodluck Jonathan and his
wife, Patience bombarded the airport.
 Amaechi,  who arrived on a different flight from Abuja around 9:00
AM had to wait in the VIP

lounge of the airport until the other four
governors arrived as he could not leave, worried that his convoy would
come under attack from the protesters.


 Sources at the airport told SaharaReporters that the protesters
were bused to the airport a early as 7 AM this morning, by 8AM huge
crowd bearing placards     had virtually taken over the airport with the
police giving them protection.
 Aides to the governor said they are worried that a bloody
confrontation could arise should the governors leave the airport as
several of the protesters appear armed.


 Opposition parties earlier revealed that Mr. Jonathan wants to
foment a violent confrontation between supporters of the governor, and
those opposed to him so as to give room to declare a state of
emergency in the state.
 Last week, five lawmakers led by an Evans Bipi, who is a close
relative of Mr. Jonathan’s wife tried unsuccessfully to hijack the
leadership of the Rivers State House of Assembly.
