Former President, Goodluck Jonathan was the victim of a premeditated attack today as his convoy was waylaid by some Bayelsa militants.

He narrowly escaped death in Bayelsa state today, November 30 as some suspected men accused of working for the All Progressives Congress in the state drove into Jonathan’s convoy.

The militants, who stopped and drove into a short motorcade transporting the former leader of the nation from the Julius Berger bridge area of the state capital Yenagoa, trailed and chased the motorcade to the entrance of the private house of Jonathan in the Kpansia area of the town, before they were crushed and detained by a combined team of security operatives attached to the ex-president.

Members of the arrested band have been taken to the Bayelsa state police command for further investigation and interrogation.

Last year Jonathan and some top government officials escaped an air crash at the Minna Airport, when a presidential jet developed a technical fault, while they were aboard.

Another accident with former president happened at the Armed Forces Remembrance Day ceremony in Abuja as one of the soldiers in the firing party mistakenly pointed his rifle at GEJ’s direction.

Goodluck Jonathan was serving as president from 2010 till 2015. In March presidential poll he was defeated by Muhammadu Buhari.
