Nigeria's Security Situation Forces President Jonathan To Cancel State Visit To Namibia
President Goodluck Jonathan's visit to South Africa and Namibia has ended abruptly as the President, and his team cancelled a scheduled state visit to Namibia.
Sources in Abuja told SaharaReporters that security agencies advised the president to return home as a result of high profile killings that have so far claimed some 100 army and police officers as well as civilains in Borno, Bayelsa, Nasarawa, Taraba and Benue states in the last few days.
Mr. Jonathan will leave Cape Town in South and return to Nigeria by 7 PM tonight canceling a two day visit scheduled for Namibia.
