That is what Sahara Reporters is reporting. According to SR, about 30 soldiers guarding the Governor’s lodge have been summarily withdrawn by the Brigade Commander in charge of the Joint Task Force (JTF) in Port Harcourt at the orders of President Goodluck Jonathan.
SaharaReporters also reports that the soldiers took with them two Armored Personnel Cars (APC) usually stationed at Government House.
A military source allegedly told SR that the removal of the soldiers was ordered from Abuja. He warned that things might get bloodier in the state capital with the JTF gone from Government House leaving the security of the governor and his aides in the hands of a few police officers and State Security Services agents.
