Police Bar Clark-led PANDEF from Holding Meeting in Rivers

Operatives of the Nigerian Police Force Thursday took over the Hotel Presidential, Port Harcourt, Rivers State, venue for the planned Chief Edwin Clark-led Pan Niger Delta Elders Forums (PANDEF), fourth quarter general meeting.
The meeting which was proposed to hold on Thursday was greeted with heavily armed, fierce looking policemen, who barricaded the entrance to the venue, chasing way visitors from accessing the hotel.
The source said the cause of the development could not be ascertained, but it was gathered that the leader of the group, Clark and other executives who are already lodged in the facility are stucked in the five star hotel.
Also, Dr. Osasu Ekpen Isibor, National Rep Host Communities of Nigeria Producing Oil and Gas (HOSTCOM) said: “We all came to Hotel Presidential this morning for the meeting only to see everywhere taken over by the police.
“This is not proper. We do not know what may have led to this development. The police officer told us to go that the meeting has been cancelled.”
