Asinim revealed that a band of vexed youths wrongly thought the Jonathan’s convoy was one of the governorship candidates’ in the state and followed the convoy, only to discover that the convoy belonged to the ex-president.
The youths, on discovering it was Jonathan’s convoy after following him to his abode in Yenagoa, ran away as security operatives chased and successfully arrested a few of them.
Asinim said: “There was no attack on the former President. The youths mistook his convoy for a governorship candidate engaging in campaigns.
“But when they discovered on getting to the entrance of his house in Yenagoa that it was that of the President, they ran away. Some of them were arrested. They did not haul stones at the President’s convoy. They did not attack the convoy and no weapon was found on them.”

Schoolgirl, 15, found hanged after 'developing an allergic reaction to the WiFi at her school'

   The parents of 15-year-old Jenny Fry, from Oxfordshire, claim that she suffered from electro-hypersensitivity (EHS), which caused her to suffer tiredness, headaches and bladder problems.

A schoolgirl was found dead in woodland after suffering an allergic reaction to her school's WiFi that made her life a misery, an inquest heard.
The parents of 15-year-old Jenny Fry claim that she suffered from electro-hypersensitivity (EHS), which caused her to suffer tiredness, headaches and bladder problems.
Her mother Debra told the hearing that Jenny was badly affected by the wireless internet connections at Chipping Norton School in Oxfordshire, where she was a pupil.
After becoming increasingly distressed by her symptoms - which were never investigated by a doctor - the schoolgirl was found hanged in Brooke Woods, near her home in Chadlington, in June 11 this year.
Earlier in the day she had texted a friend telling her she was not going to school that day, the inquest heard.
Mrs Fry and her husband Charles Newman told Oxfordshire Coroners' Court that they believed their daughter became ill because of WiFi, and had removed the internet connection from their own home.
They told today how she would often hide herself in empty classrooms and would only sit in certain seats in lessons so that she would be as far away from the router as possible, they said.
Speaking after the inquest, Mrs Fry said: WiFi and children do not mix. I believe that WiFi killed my daughter.' 

Mrs Fry had told how Jenny started showing signs of EHS in November 2012. She said: 'Jenny was getting ill and so was I. I did some research and found how dangerous WiFi could be so I had it taken out of the house.
'Both Jenny and I were fine at home but Jenny continued to be ill at school in certain areas.

“One is either here or there and even those who are arbiters or referees or monitors if stand on your own belief you will be accused by both sides. We are going through a very difficult political evolution with so many distortions and the 1999 Constitution is compounding Nigeria’s problem”.
“If one goes through the social media before the 2015 election, everything evil was PDP, that PDP was Boko Haram, PDP was fuel shortage, PDP was poverty, PDP was agony, PDP was fake and was dividing Nigeria, PDP was looting Nigeria, in fact, everything evil was PDP.”
“Everything PDP in the past is now with the present APC. PDP was throwing bombs, bombs are being thrown now, PDP was fuel shortage, there is fuel shortage now, PDP was killing Muslims, Muslims are being killed now, PDP was causing poverty and hunger, it is the same thing with the APC today. PDP was promoting ethnic politics, it is the same thing now with the APC.”
