We are yet to have full details of the developing story from Aso Drive where suspected insurgents reportedly attempted to stage a jailbreak from the headquarters of the State Security Services (SSS).
More on that to come shortly.
However, Reuben Abati, the president’s spokesman has assured Nigerians that Pres. Goodluck Jonathan is safe. In a statement on Twitter, Abati said: “What happened at the SSS HQs has nothing to do with the Villa. President Jonathan is safe and well. Thank you for your concern and support.”
Abati clarified that the shooting was as a result of an attempted jail break.
“What happened at the SSS HQ this morning was an attempted jailbreak which has been effectively foiled. There is no cause for alarm.”
