Borno State Governor, Prof. Babagana Umara Zulum and his predecessor, Senator Kashim Shettima did not visit the suspended Police officer, DCP Abba Kyari as depicted in a video trending online.
The spokesman to Governor Zulum, Mallam Isa Gusau in statement made available to newsmen said the duo of Governor Zulum and Senator Shettima do not know the residence of embattled DCP Abba Kyari, let alone visiting him.
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.
Isa Gusau, 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 wall on June 30, shortly after he visited Shettima. See link to Kyari’s facebook post:
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.
Gusau released a video of some sympathizers 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 enjoined all to take note of the TV behind Zulum and Abba Kyari with a CNN breaking news on the release of American Comedian actor, Bill Cosby, which, as can be verified by anyone online, happened on June 30, 2021.
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.
There is also a video of visit by other sympathizers, link to Kyari’s post on June 30, 2021, and compare with the same video in circulation, claiming Zulum and Shettima had visited Kyari
