Former President Goodluck Jonathan and his wife, Patience, on Sunday visited Lance Corporal Umar Muttaka, one of the soldiers on guard at his residence in Otuoke, Bayelsa state who sustained injury when gunmen attacked his house last Tuesday.
The former president and his wife commend the bravery of the young soldier.
Jonathan, who visited the injured soldier in an undisclosed hospital in Yenagoa, wished him quick recovery, and commended the bravery of the security men on duty in his house, who stood firm and fought for the interest and security of the nation.
