A man has narrated how security personnel of former president Goodluck Jonathan allegedly threatened to shoot him after bashing his car. Hear his story!

An Instagram user with the handle @ty_mix25 narrated his encounter with the convoy of the immediate past President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.

According to him, he was driving along Sapele road when the convoy of the former president bashed his car on November 29, 2019. As he tried to draw their attention to the damage done, some of the security personnel threatened to shoot him if he did not leave.

Coincidentally, both he and the convoy were heading to the same destination – the University of Igbinedion where the former president was recently honored with a doctorate degree. He ceased the opportunity to write a note to a dignitary in the convoy, but the note was ignored.

Read his narrative below:

"‪First of all let me take out time to congratulate Former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan on his well deserved honor by IUO, And to bring to the notice of the general public what transpired along sapele road while his convoy was coming from Bayelsa on the 29th day of November 2019 .

I was on my way coming from delta when I met a bad spot where I was supposed to cross to the other side of the road, unfortunately an heavy duty vehicle got stocked, I reversed to probably look for an alternative root when their convoy arrived and also couldn’t pass. On seeing them, I cleared for them to pass. The white coastal bus with reg number NEM 503 AA (Bayelsa) directly after a Prado Jeep with Reg number BR 120 GWA (Abuja) while reversing destroyed my car light and fender, I called the attention of the driver, and one of the Army attached to the convoy threatened to shoot me if I don’t leave immediately.

I followed them to Edo immediately after Ologbo where they had flat Tyre and parked at a Gass station , I came down with my female colleague trying to reach out to a lady that came out of the vip car who I later gathered Is Chief Dr Mrs Nkechi Mbah (former president of NCWS) , but the security men pulled out their guns and asked me to get out with my car with one referring to me as a “NOBODY “ they said they were going to Lagos that I should follow them to Lagos. As God may have it , they were heading to IGBINEDION UNIVERSITY OKADA, where the president was to be honored with a Doctorate degree along side-myself an msc graduate from the department of political science and public administration.

This world is indeed a small place ,on Getting to the venue I saw them all , and wrote a piece of note to CHIEF Mrs Nkechi Mbah, for them to at least buy the light while I do the panel beating, she ignored. And I decided that the world would know about how the poor are been oppressed on a daily bases by those God had blessed in Nigeria. President Jonathan being a world Ambassador of peace should not be working with people who are tyrants and have no respect for humans irrespective of their status . As I speak my car is still here unattended to. There is God ooooo"
