It was alleged that the governor was prevented from carrying out the function of commissioning the project by thugs led by Mr Monday Igbuya, the speaker, who was recently impeached from the state legislature.
The ousted speaker led a band of thugs, and invaded the venue before chasing away the governor and his entourage.
