The erstwhile first lady of Nigeria, Dame Patience Jonathan has been barred from using the VIP lounge of the Port Harcourt International Airport.
According to a nameless source who witnessed the incident, ”Mrs Jonathan was on her way to the burial of her late CSO, Tamuno Jacob Igbomie, who was allegedly shot dead by unknown assailants penultimate Friday. Igbomie’s corpse was found in his Honda Accord car on Airport Road, Abuja, with all his phones, wallet and other personal effects intact in the car.
”Last Friday, July 17, the former first lady arrived Port Harcourt International Airport and made for the VIP lounge as had been the norm. However, she was practically locked out and prevented from accessing the lounge. All efforts by the former president’s wife and the few people by her to pacify the security agents at the airport to allow the protocol were rebuffed, as they stood their ground claiming that they had ‘orders from above”, the source concluded.
