Bayelsa State Police Command Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Asinim Butswat, has refuted reports that former President Goodluck Jonathan was attacked in the state.
Police deny attack on ex-President's convoy
Bayelsa police Command explained that a bunch of "hungry youths" mistook Jonathan's convoy for a governorship candidate's.
He explained that a bunch of youths had swarmed one of the cars in Nigeria's ex-leader's convoy, thinking it was occupied by one of the governorship candidate in the December 5 election in the state.
"They followed the convoy perhaps for alms, only to discover it was that of Jonathan. When they realized this, the youths, who had followed him up to his house in Yenagoa, pulled back and ran away.
"Security operatives however ran after them and arrested some of them. They did not attack the convoy and no weapon was found on them.", Butswat said.
