Abuja - Rivers State condemned the attack of four governors from the North who were visiting embattled governor of the state, Rotimi Ameachi, on Tuesday.
Angry youths from the ruling People's Democratic Party laid siege on Governors Rabiu Kwankwaso of Kano, Sule Lamido (Jigawa), Murtala Nyako
(Adamawa) and Babangida Aliyu of Niger State at the Port Harcourt International Airport resulting in extensive damage to property.
“What happened at the airport is worrisome," River State Commissioner for Information and Communications, Ibim Semenitari, said.
During the melee, the bus carrying the governors was damaged and other vehicles that were party of the convoy were smashed.
Semenitari denied reports that the protesters held the governors hostage.
The attacks at the airport are the latest in a series of violence blamed on the factionalism within the ruling party PDP ahead of the 2015 general election.
Amaechi was recently suspended from the party for openly opposing President Goodluck Jonathan for re-election.
