He wrote on Instagram: “The attack on the former Nigerian President, Goodluck Jonathan is not just an attack on an elder Statesman but an attack on the fabrics of our compassion as a people. On the eve of Christmas which is seen as the high point of sacrifice, love and selfless giving, it is regrettable that this sore occurrence has happened.

“This very sadly, scores a new low for the politics of Bayelsa State and I unequivocally condemn this attack which reveals how negative emotional investment in politics has continued to drag people to the far edges of desperation, cynicism and total disregard for human life.

“May the soul of the courageous soldier that died in the attack, rest in peace. I send my warmest solidarity to the family of Goodluck Jonathan and all affected at this very steep and trying moment and urge security agencies to bring, swiftly, the perpetrators, and those that inspire them, to book”.
