Borno State Commissioner for Information, Inuwa Bwala has denied media reports that Former Borno State Governor, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff was arrested in Cameroun or anywhere else
He said in a press statement that the former Governor did not travel to Cameroun around the time he was reported to have been arrested.
The commissioner said that while one could not rule out political undertones in the report, the former Governor denied any connection whatsoever with the said group to which he was being linked.
“It is pertinent to advice his detractors to look for more plausible and convincing reasons to vilify him and not resort to using foreign unrated media houses to embarrass him. They fought him during the elections, and although they rigged him out of the senatorial race, he floored them in all the others.
They fought him in the courts to undo the administration he put on ground, but he triumphed. They are not ready to give, up, but one fact remains that Senator Ali Modu Sheriff cannot be deterred by the antics of a desperate opposition, seeking to gain relevance by all means,” the Commissioner said.
