The IBB Square, Makurdi in Benue State was thrown into confusion and disarray last weekend when the Benue youth fiesta staged there was disrupted as a popular Nigerian musician, Terry G, the crooner was performing on stage.
The musician hails from the state.
The Benue fiesta, which attracted hundreds of youth, including men and women was was organized by the member representing Guma/Makurdi federal constituency, Barrister Emmanuel Jime, who is known to be nursing gubernatorial ambition in 2015.
The venue of the event was jam-packed as all fun seekers in the agrarian state attended to unwind.
Prominent Nigerian artistes including J. Martins, I Go Dye, Ice Prince and Pastor Nicodemus Mbatsavtampu performed at event and it was such a lively occasion before it was rudely interrupted. Trouble started as Terry G was on stage performing and some youth suspected to be hoodlums began to throw sachet water on the musician and later broke bottles and charged towards him, while making loud noise. There was confusion as people ran helter skelter for their lives.
The particular IBB square arena has remained a beehive of social activities preparatory to the Christmas and new year celebrations and none of the events had been marred by such rude interruption and violence.
