PDP, APC Supporters Clash Over Motion To Impeach Buhari
Youths and supporters of the All Progressive Congress, APC, and the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, have clashed at the Benin Airport over the motion seeking the invocation of Section 143 of Nigeria’s Constitution.
The PDP supporters were at the airport to give a rousing welcome to Mathew Urhoghide, the Senator who moved the motion for the Senate to begin impeachment proceedings against President Muhammadu Buhari.
But the APC supporters, who had earlier protested in the streets of Benin City, disowning Senator Urhoghide, were at the airport to express disappointment with the motion.
Armed with placard of various inscriptions, the APC labelled the senator a failure while his supporters heap praises on him.
The tension was rife as more supporters besieged the airport either for the APC or the PDP.
The issue got worsened when the two side came face-to-face and started calling each party names.
Both sides sang anti-Buhari and anti-PDP songs.
However, the State Commissioner of Police, Babatunde Kokumo, had to intervene to forestall the tense atmosphere to stop the confrontations from rising into something else.WATCH: Buhari has the right to contest again... Nigerians speak
