THE Rivers State Governor, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, was locked inside the Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport on Sunday for an undisclosed number of minutes after his chartered aircraft was grounded by the airport authorities.

The State Commissioner for Information and Communications, Mrs. Ibim Semenitari, who spoke on Amaechi’s behalf, while briefing newsmen on Monday, said all the gates leading into and out of the airport were locked apparently to prevent the take-off or landing of any aircraft.

Semenitari expressed surprise that the gates could be locked when it was clear that Amaechi was still in the aircraft.

She explained that the padlocks to the gates had to be broken to allow Amaechi, who was in company with the former Governor of Gombe State, Senator Danjuma Goje and Alhaji Kawu Baraje go out of the airport.

The commissioner added that Amaechi was denied take-off from the Aminu Kano Airport by a man identified as Commandant, who insisted that the order was from above.

Amaechi, according to her, was forced to travel by road from Kano to Port Harcourt after the aircraft was grounded.
