I’m still in shock over the death of soldier who was shot at my house – Jonathan
Former President Goodluck Jonathan has disclosed that he is still pains and shock over the death of a soldier who was shot by unknown gunmen who attacked his home in Otuoke, Bayelsa State on Christmas day eve.
Jonathan revealed this while hosting members of the executive council of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS). He also expressed worry over the insecurity witnessed across the country.
The former President said;
“I thank you for coming to sympathise with me and my family. The fact that a soldier lost his life in that attack traumatizes me. That young man wouldn’t have died, the way he did, if he was not protecting me.
“Whenever people come to me, just as you people have come, to talk about that attack, I feel worried about the general society.
“Whenever I consider that people could do that to a former President who has reasonable security guarding him, my mind reaches out to the rest of Nigerians who do not have that level of protection.
“I am worried that so many people are becoming victims of sporadic shootings, kidnappings and so on. I believe that the country will get over the kind of insecurity it currently faces.”
