Security operatives barred protesting youths from getting close to the convoy of National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
Oshiomhole was in Benin to attend a burial ceremony on Saturday, February 22, 2020.
Going by reports that youths were at the airport to boo Oshiomole, heavily armed security personnel of the Department of State Security, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps were stationed at various points of the Airport.
The youths chanted anti-Oshiomhole songs and used other unprintable words.
At the airport to receive Oshiomhole were Dr. Pius Odubu, General Charles Airhiavbere and other APC chieftains.
Some APC chieftains who pleaded anonymity accused Governor Godwin Obaseki for activities of the youths.
A top Edo Government official who pleaded anonymity denied involvement of Obaseki in the airport incident as Oshiomole’s travail is self inflicted.
