Attackers

 

Erstwhile President of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan, has urged the police to ensure the arrest and prosecution of the gunmen who attacked his home in Otuoke, Bayelsa State on Tuesday, December 24.

Jonathan said this was important to ensure that such criminality never happens again in his community or any other place in the country.

Recall that Jonathan’s home was attacked by unknown gunmen on the eve of Christmas leading to the death of one of his security personnel.

The assailants stormed Jonathan’s country home in about five engine boats and attacked the marine security post located within the periphery of the residence.

Thanking Nigerians for the continuing show of solidarity and sympathy following the Christmas Eve attack, he commended the Nigerian military for their gallantry in repelling the attack by engaging the assailants in a fierce gun duel that unfortunately claimed the life of a soldier.

Jonathan noted that since the assailants attacked his marine security post on December 24, 2019, many Nigerians of different social status, 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 over the unfortunate attack in his house.

The gunmen who attacked the former president’s residence, retreated when they couldn’t stand the firepower of the military.
