The Nation
15 January 2012

Disturbed by the rumours making the rounds of alleged plots to assassinate President Goodluck Jonathan and other service chiefs, a group under the aegis of ‘Niger Delta People in Bayelsa state’ embarked on a mass protest across Yenagoa, the state capital yesterday, with procession marching across the streets at the major East/West expressways.

Displaying placards with various inscriptions such as: “Any attempt to assassinate President Jonathan will be met with tough stance”, “You touch Jonathan we break Nigeria”, “We swear, oil will shut down soon”, “subsidy removal is better than Boko Haam”, “Boko Haram is killing Nigerians, not oil subsidy” “NLC/TUC have never protested killings by Boko Haram, why on subsidy”and more.
