Feb 10, 2015 – Jonathan Orders Soldiers To Lay Siege At Tinubu’s Mansion Gate In Ikoyi Lagos, APC Leader Says He’s Not Intimidated

GEJ Places Tinubu On Surveillance, AGN Leaders Says They’re Monitoring My Movement

At least 30 unknown soldiers are reportedly laying siege on the Bourdillon Road, Ikoyi, Lagos, residence of the national leader of the All Progressive Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

A statement issued by the former governor’s media office said soldiers riding in three patrol vans and army truck have been stationed close to the residence for three days to the consternation of many people in the area.

Their obvious targets, the statement said, include Tinubu himself and perhaps the hordes of politicians and visitors that visit the residence.
The statement said the soldiers were first noticed in the area at about 11.00pm on Sunday.

It said, “They stationed about 500 meters away from Tinubu’s gate. Later they moved close to his gate as if they want to enter the premises. The stern looking soldiers were around for hours on Sunday and returned on Monday to continue their surveillance.

“On Monday night about 10.45pm, they returned to the residence in two army vans and were there throughout the night. Some of the soldiers discharged from the van and walked back and forth in front of the house and around the house.

On Tuesday morning, two vans from the army were stationed on both sides of the house with their missions shrouded in secrecy.

“Tinubu remains emphatically resolute and committed to the path of change in Nigeria and the liberating manifesto of the All Progressives Party. Tinubu is an unrelenting critic of the maladministration of the Jonathan-led PDP government. He is credited to have played the most pivotal role in the re-building of the Nigerian opposition and the formation of the APC, Nigeria’s most formidable opposition party since independence.

“The exact mission of the soldiers is not known but it fits clearly into a new pattern of intimidation of leaders of the APC and the opposition. The recent massing of soldiers for three days now at Tinubu’s gate might be part of a broader plan by the Jonathan Presidency to intimidate Tinubu and his political associates and scare him from making provocative statements or building a broad coalition against the present government as he did during the NADECO days.

“As the scaremongering by the army continues, Nigerians must come to the realization that the military has abandoned its statutory role and have now being dragged into partisan politics. Nigerians and the South West should hold the Jonathan led military responsible if any harm or danger comes to Tinubu and his family. The case of the ‘Unknown Soldier’ is too recent in our memory.”

Meanwhile, the former governor has said he will not be intimidated “by this latest show of strength, intimidation and possible harassment.”

He stated this while reacting to the presence of soldiers in places close to his residence.

“I remain resolute in my advocacy and support for the rule of law. Jonathan’s government has through the service chiefs staged a coup against Nigerians and the Constitution and now wants to silence his critics.

I will not be muzzled through the barrel of the gun. The guns and bullets they should use to defeat Boko Haram are now being turned against the opposition and innocent Nigerians,” he said.

    @Saphire please save me that crap. Does that make any sense to you when your President abandon his national duty and try to protect his opponent building. Okay! your point is your President moved the soldiers from North East down to Lagos in order to protect Boko Haram victims in Lagos. Now I believe this man called Jonathan is suffering from Dementia and Bipolar disorder. This is man has allowed himself to be used as political tool and the end result will be a Civil War. If Jonathan continue with this trend, that means he is ready to divide this Country according to the advise given to him by his advisors but history will judge this man if he intentionally try to divide this Nation.

    Now Nigerian people and Yorubas have seen the damage Obasanjo done to all Nigerians when he imposed a vagabond called Jonathan on presidential candidate Yaradua just few days before the 2007 election. Obasanjo has created a monster that has gotten out of control due to his election fraud, imposition/fixing of candidates, and because of his foolishness and selfish reasons. Jonathan is a dumb, unqualified, most imcompentent, and most foolish president in our nation history; his two parents were nobody in his village because they were cursed by poverty that they can even avoid to buy him common shoes. Today, this criminal and corrupt president want to cling to power after six years of nothing good to show for it. He postponed the presidential election date because of fear of losing in a disgraceful way to our able General – Mohammad Buari. Now he has resulted to intimidating, harassing, and silencing his critics. President Badluck Ebele Jonathan will surely end up like Gadaffi of Libya who dead a shameful death on the street of Tripoli, he will definitely end of like Samuel Doe of Liberia who also dead a shameful death on the street of Monrovia, Jona will end up like Saddam Hussein Of Iraq who was hanged and dead a disgraceful death in his own nation. He is dumb, unintelligent, and draft person that refuses to see the danger ahead of him just like General Sanni Abacha who want to remain in power against the will of Nigerian people. Babangida, Obasanjo, Abulsalam Abubakar, and those that alive today enjoying their looted money were smart enough to relished power when the tension was high. It is true that Jonathan surround himself with crooks, unpatriotic and criminal people, God’s forsaken and greedy pastors, and many bad people that refused to tell him the truth. He can exchange person like late Yaradua for his goodluck demon but he cannot exchange our collection destinies for his own personal gains called Badluck. God will surely deliver Nigerian people from this monster called Jonathan created by Olusegun Obasanjo. Jonathan is messing with the wrong guy-Jagaban. Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu will not give in to any forms of intimidation and harassment from this bad man called Ebele.
