It has been reported that some angry Bayelsa Airport land owners have blocked the main entrance of the Airport.
The protest is coming after the land owners claim that the government refused to compensate them after they promised to do so.
In trending photos online, the protesters are seen sleeping on the road inside their tens and in their mosquito nets. There are also chairs all around the place.
Local reports show that the saga all started when the state government failed to compensate them as agreed last month.
They said Seriake Dickson, the current governor of the state, is unrealistic and cannot be trusted in any agreement as he has not even given them hope if the compensation will be paid sooner or later.
One of the protesters who spoke to reporters on condition of anonymity said:
‘The government of Seriake is not for the people at all. How can you take land from the rightful owners and refuse to given them what they deserve. We will not leave here until we are given our rightful compensations’
The protesters landed at the area with mosquito nets, bags of rice other food stuffs and cooking items. As the situation was so intense, security agencies were deployed by the State government to douse the tension but to no avail.
