ABUJA—Niger Delta Nations Leaders, NDNL, has cried out over an alleged plot to assassinate President Goodluck Jonathan by unscrupulous politicians working in collaboration with serving and retired military officers with the aim of disintegrating the nation.

Addressing a press conference in Abuja yesterday, the group said: “The promoters of this plot seek to achieve their aims by assassinating the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan and also eliminate very senior military and security officers from the South and Middle Belt of Nigeria, particularly Chief of Army Staff, Gen. Ihejirika, Senate President, David Mark and the National Security Adviser Gen. Owoye Azazi (rtd).

“Those identified in this sinister plot include retired senior military and security officers, who are working quietly with some serving officers and some ‘powerful’ opportunistic businessmen.”
