Federal Government Probes Former Pres. Goodluck Jonathan Over Bombings in Niger Delta

SHARE:



The Federal Government is leaving no stone unturned over the allegations of former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan's involvement with the Niger Delta militant groups particularly the notorious Niger Delta Avengers after being exposed by a splinter group of the NDA named Reformed Niger Delta Avengers and another indictment by the Movement for Emancipation of Niger Delta, MEND.


The spate of destruction of oil facilities in the Niger Delta have compounded the economic woes of Nigeria following a sharp drop in daily crude oil production and subsequent earnings.

Credible intelligence sources have told Daily Trust that a hushed up investigation is already underway to establish the level of involvement of Mr Jonathan in the series of explosions affecting the country’s oil producing infrastructure that has left the country unable to produce nearly a third of its 2.2 million barrels of crude oil per day.

This situation has left the government unable to implement its budget of 6 trillion Naira that was predicated on its agreed quota level and is further confounded by low crude oil price.

Nigeria’s Finance Minister, Kemi Adeosun has since declared that Nigeria is technically in recession.

It will be recalled that Niger Delta militants had at various times before the elections vowed that they would make Nigeria ungovernable if Mr. Jonathan lost his party’s nomination or if he was defeated by Buhari.

The most publicised threat was made by top militant leaders at a meeting in Bayelsa Government House. At that meeting militants leaders such as Asari Dokubo and Tompolo threatened to declare war on Nigeria if Jonathan should lose the election. 

They took the decision at a meeting attended by the Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta Affairs, and chairman of Amnesty Implementation Committee, Kingsley Kuku; Bayelsa state Governor, Seriake Dickson; President General of Ijaw Youth Council, Udengs Eradiri and Victor Ben Ebikabowei, aka, Boy Loaf.

Jonathan has frequently denied ties with any militant group which were rumoured to be created as contingency plans by the opposition party, PDP to secure power after loss by electoral means.
