Borno State governor, Prof. Babagana Umara Zulum, and his predecessor, Senator Kashim Shettima, did not know the residence of the embattled DCP Abba Kyari, let alone visit him, Zulum’s spokesman, Malam Isa Gusau, has said.
Gusau said he resorted to issuing the clarification since Abba Kyari who promised issuing the clarification himself did not do so, more than four hours after making the promise to the spokesman.
He said a 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 mischievous circulation of rumours that the Senator had died in the UK.
Kyari himself had shared the same video on his verified Facebook page on June 30, shortly after he visited Shettima.
Kyari who hails from Borno State and a constituent of Shettima, visited the former governor to wish him well like many others had visited the Senator during the time.
Gusau released a video of some sympathisers who had also visited the Senator the same period, which showed the senator receiving them in his house, the same place being described as Abba Kyari’s house.
Gusau also pointed observers to take note the TV behind Zulum and Abba Kyari with a CNN breaking news on the release of American Comedian actor, Bill Cosby, which can be verified by anyone, happened on June 30, 2021.
The governor’s spokesman called on Kyari to issue a similar clarification as he had promised when he (Gusau) 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.
