BREAKING! Rivers: Ipo Community Women stage protest, block Port Harcourt airport entrance 

The Ipo community women have blocked the entrance to the Port Harcourt airport in Rivers State.

As early as 7:30 am on Tuesday morning (Today), the women from Ipo which is one of the host communities of the airport, blocked the gate at the airport roundabout, waving placards, singing, wailing, and even cooking at the gate.

They carried banners with inscriptions like, ‘We Demand Our Citizens Rights’, ‘Ipo Women Peaceful Protest’, among others.

Their actions had caused a buildup of traffic as passengers could not access the airport.

This would be the second time in 6 months the women were protesting.

It would be recalled that they protested on the 27th of March this year, but were pacified by the former Chairman of the Rivers Traditional Rulers Council, Sergeant Awuse.
