Bayelsa State Airport land owners have blocked the main entrance of the Airport as the State Government failed to compensate them.
According to reports, 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.
Meanwhile, 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.
