According to Daily Trust, the three Governors reportedly flew to Madrid, Spain, on Friday night.

They left the country hours after Wike held a media chat where he fired salvo at the PDP National Chairman, Dr Iyorchia Ayu, and insisted that he must quit for peace to reign.
He also boasted that Alhaji Atiku Abubakar would not win the election if he and his allies leave the party.

“The concession we have made is that we won’t leave the party. Assuming we say we will leave the party, do you know the effect of that? Whether you like it or not, if I leave the party today, PDP cannot win. If we are leaving, we are leaving with all our people, and that is the truth of the matter.
“However, let this man go, the zone that is supposed to produce the chairman, produce the chairman and you don’t want to make the concession. What concession have they made? Do you think that today, we the five governors say we going to a party and there will still be PDP?”
