Ex-President Jonathan arrived the State House at exactly 2 p.m, at a time President  Buhari was observing his afternoon prayers at the Villa Mosque.

The president had gone to the Mosque straight from the Council chamber  after he presided over the weekly meeting of the Federal Executive Council.

The reason for the former President’s visit remains unknown as no official statement has been released. Fillers from the Villa are of the opinion that the visit will definitely be connected to the restiveness in the Ex- Presidents region.

Last week the a new militant group, the  Adaka Boro Avengers shelved plans to declare a Niger Delta Republic, claiming it got calls from Ex-President Jonathan and some senior Niger Delta citizens asking for the move to be stopped.
