Bono State Governor, Prof. Babagana Umara Zulum and his predecessor, Senator Kashim Shettima, have denied reports of visiting suspended police officer, Abba Kyari.
A video of Zulum and Shettima with Kyari had surfaced online on Wednesday, August 4, saying both men paid a solidarity visit to the embattled police officer who has been indicted in the Hushpuppi fraud case.
Spokesperson of Governor Zulum, Isa Gusau, in a statement says the governor and his predecessor do not know the residence of embattled DCP Abba Kyari, let alone visiting him.
Isa Gusau, said the video in circulation was recorded by some associates of Abba Kyari at the residence of Senator Kashim Shettima in Abuja on June 30, 2021, when Abba Kyari paid an empathy visit to Shettima following the mischievous circulation of rumours that the Senator had died in the UK.
He said Kyari himself had shared the same video on his verified Facebook wall on June 30, adding that Kyari who hails from Borno State and in Shettima’s constituency visited the former Governor to wish him well like many others had visited the Senator during the time.
The spokesman called on Abba Kyari to issue a similar clarification as he had promised when the spokesman called his attention to the misrepresentation given the fact it was Kyari himself who took that video and released it on his Facebook page on June 30, 2021.
