I Didn’t Order Kidnap Of Ex-Gov Audu’s Brother – Wada

Idris WadaKogi State Governor, Capt. Idris Wada at the weekend denied an allegation that he masterminded the abduction of the younger brother to former governor, Prince Abubakar Audu.

Audu, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), accused Gov. Wada of being responsible for the kidnap of his younger brother – Musa Audu – last Tuesday at his residence in Aloma, Ofu Local Government Area.

But Wada’s spokesman, Mr Jacob Edi described the allegation as baseless.

He said the former governor’s brother had no political value in the state and does not pose any threat to the people and government of the state.

Edi advised the former governor to stop blaming Wada’s administration “for his frustration occasioned by his failure at the last governorship election”.

Edi recalled that Gov. Wada attended Audu’s son’s wedding recently noting that if he had anything against him, he would not have attended the occasion.

“We have many important state issues to attend to. Let him think of how we can move the state forward, rather than peddling rumours about the Wada led administration. We do not have time for rumour mongers, but we listen to constructive criticisms,” he said.

Edi therefore appealed to the people to disregard the rumours.
