Soldier, 3 others dead as gunmen attack Goodluck Jonathan’s house

A soldier on guard duty has been reportedly killed as unknown gunmen attacked the courtyard of former President Goodluck Jonathan situated close to the bank of the river at Otuoke, Ogbia Local Government Area, Bayelsa State.

The Nation reports that about three of the gunmen were also killed by the soldiers, who foiled their attempt to break into the former president’s house.
The gunmen were said to have come through the river on five speedboats and opened fire on the soldiers.

The hoodlums who came in about five engine boats stormed the security post located about 100 metres away from former President’s residence by 1:30 am on Tuesday and attempted to take away a  gunboat belonging to the military stationed at the creek beside the residence.

They were however resisted by soldiers who engaged them in a fire fight.
The gunmen who couldn’t stand the firepower of the military were forced to beat a retreat. One soldier, unfortunately, died in the ensuing gun battle while another was injured.
