The All Progressives Congress, APC, has called on security agencies to conduct a thorough investigation into the attack on the Otuoke country home of former President Goodluck Jonathan.
In an e-mailed statement to The Trent signed by its national publicity secretary, Lanre Issa-Onilu, on Tuesday, December 24, 2019, the APC condemned the attack and urged security agencies to fish out the perpetrators and their sponsors.
Issa-Onilu said: “Following reports that gunmen attacked the country home of former President Goodluck Jonathan in Otuoke, Ogbia Local Government Area of Bayelsa State, APC demands from security and intelligence agencies a swift, sweeping and thorough probe of the shocking incident.
“The APC joins other well-meaning Nigerians in condemning the attack in its entirety. We call on security agencies to fish out the perpetrators and their sponsors.
“We extend condolences to the family of the soldier who reportedly died in the attack.
“The Party also wishes the other injured soldier a full and speedy recovery,” he said.
A soldier was killed and one other wounded when gunmen attacked the home of former President Jonathan on Christmas eve. The attack occurred around 1am and lasted for about 2 hours as troops stationed close to his home engaged the gunmen in battle.
