Flights disrupted as P’Harcourt airport host communities protest blackout, neglect

The people of Omagwa and Ipo communities in Ikwerre Local Government Area of Rivers State have barricaded the entrance of the Port Harcourt International Airport while protesting lack of power supply and other amenities.

The protest has disrupted flight operations as air travellers are stranded, just as the situation has caused a gridlock stretching from the Airport Road to adjoining communities.
