Unconfirmed reports say former President Goodluck Jonathan has lost his son, Ariwera.
Though no member of the ex-president’s family in Otuoke, Bayelsa State, could confirm the development as Jonathan is not in the country as not been seen around for sometime.
UPDATE: There have been conflicting reports from sources on Twitter.
A senator with a verified account tweeted:
My heart and prayers are with Dr Goodluck Jonathan on the loss of his son, May the Lord grant his family the fortitude to bear the loss. #HA
