Red Alert! Security beefed up around Goodluck Jonathan

Security agencies including the State Security Services (SSS) and the Nigerian Police may have increased the security alert threshold of the acting President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan.
“As it is with matters relating to security, the security agencies have beefed up security around the acting president because of the increased threat level to the person of the acting president,” an official said.
Though the state’s official would not give a reason for the increase in the threat level to the acting President, there are indications that events since the dramatic return of ailing President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua may have heightened security tension in the land.
“You know that there is a silent probe of strategic security officers of the presidential villa like the chief security officer to the president, Yusuf Mohammed Tilde and Yar’Adua’s aide-de-camp Mustapha Onoyveta and some other security details, this coupled with some other controversies still going on in the country, it is generally believed in security circles that the situation remains quite tempting for ambitious or aggrieved characters to want to take it out on the acting president. So, for me, I think these are some of the reasons the security alert around the acting president must have been increased.
