by Oluwatosin Fatoyinbo

There was confusion on Friday at the Benin Airport upon the arrival of President Goodluck Jonathan to the state. The President was  in Benin to   perform the foundation-laying ceremony of a $1bn independent power plant in Uhumwode Local Government Area of Edo State.

The suspected thugs numbering about 30 began to chant Anti-Oshiomole songs as the Governor, Adams Oshiomole was at the Airport toreceive the  President.

The thugs  were said to have allegedly assaulted some senior officials of the Edo State Government, including the Secretary to the State Government, Professor Julius Ihonvbere, and Chief of Staff to the Governor, Mr. Patrick Obahiagbon.

The chants lasted for some minutes before they were dispersed by security agents
