Jonathan Insists His Attackers Must Be Arrested, Prosecuted

Former President Goodluck Jonathan conducted sympathizers round the marine security post’s section of the attack on his country home in Otuoke, Bayelsa State, with a call on security agents to ensure the arrest and prosecution of the attacker.

The attackers had stormed Jonathan’s country home on December 24, in about five engine boats and attacked the marine security post located on the border of his residence. They also tried to take control of a gunboat belonging to the military at the post.

They were however resisted by soldiers who engaged them in firefight and were forced to beat a retreat.

Jonathan commended the Nigerian military for repelling the attackers by the assailants in a fierce gun duel that unfortunately claimed the life of a soldier. He also thanked Nigerians for their continual show of solidarity and sympathy following the Christmas Eve attack.

Jonathan noted that since the attack many Nigerians, including President Muhammadu Buhari, state governors and political party leaders, as well as foreigners had either visited him or called to express their heartfelt sympathy.
