His former Special Assistant on New Media, Reno Omokiri, also confirmed his arrival on his Twitter handle.

He said: “As promised, ex-President Jonathan returned to Nigeria today after multi-city speaking tour”.

It would be recalled a section of the media had reported about a week ago that Jonathan had fled the country on exile at the behest of the investigations of top Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) officials by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
