Jonathan Convoy; It was a Misconception- Police

Five members of the All Progressive Congress (APC), yesterday, were apprehended by the Bayelsa State Police Command over alleged trailing the convoy of former President Goodluck Jonathan in the state.
Contrary to the report by some media, the command said the suspects were not ex militants but persons who mistook the convoy of the immediate past president for their principal’s.
The initial report stated that Jonathan was trailed by some suspected militants allegedly working for the APC in the state.
The men, who were alleged to have intercepted and drove into a short motorcade conveying the former President from the Julius Berger bridge area of the state capital, trailed and chased the motorcade to the entrance of the private residence of the former President at the Kpansia suburb of Yenagoa, before they were overpowered and arrested by a combined team of security operatives attached to the former President.
The Bayelsa police command spokesman, Asimin Butswat explained that the suspects were not ex militants as rumoured but persons who mistakenly followed the former President convoy thinking it was that of their principal.
“our preliminary investigation showed that these were not ex-militants but boys who mistook the former President ‘s convoy for their principal.” Asimin Butswat explained.
