Former President Goodluck Jonathan’s uncle, who was abducted by gunmen on February 17, has narrated his experience at the hands of his kidnappers.
Inegite Jonathan, 72, opened up on his ordeal to the former leader who was one of many callers who thronged his at Otuoke, Bayelsa State, family sources said.
Inegite Jonathan expressed happiness over his freedom, and expressed shock over the death of his nephew, Samuel Oki, who was also abducted but killed by his kidnappers, family sources present at the meeting said.
The senior Jonathan told the former president that his abductors arrived with two speed boats and took them away. He said he pleaded with the attackers to release Mr. Oki, to no avail.
He thanked all those who supported him throughout the period of his abduction.
Among those who visited the residence were King Lot Ogiasa, the Paramount ruler Otuoke, King George Lawson, who is the clan head of Ogbia kingdom.
