President Goodluck Jonathan on Monday expressed shock over the death of Mr Oyamuyefa Alamieyeseigha, son of former governor of Bayelsa, Mr Diepreye Alamieyeseigha.

Media reports on Monday quoted the former governor as confirming his son’s death at the weekend in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

A statement issued by Dr Reuben Abati, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, said the President received the news of the death with sadness.

He said, "On behalf of his family and the Federal Government, Jonathan extends heartfelt condolences to Oyamuyefa’s father, Chief Diepreye Alamieyeseigha and his entire family on the untimely loss of a very dear son in the prime of his life.

"The President and the First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan, share their pain and grief over the death of Oyamuyefa in circumstances that are still unclear.

"Jonathan assures Chief Alamieyeseigha and his family of the full support of the Federal Government as they strive to unravel the true circumstances of the young man’s death. He prays that God Almighty will receive Oyamuyefa’s soul and comfort his grieving parents and siblings.

President Jonathan succeeded Alamieyeseigha as governor, following his impeachment in 2005.
