Jigawa State chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Ado Sani Kiri, has debunked allegations that the state government masterminded the arrest of former Governor Sule Lamido and his sons by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
“To say APC has hands in the arrest of Alhaji Lamido by some disgruntled elements is mere daydreaming. What connects APC with that case?” he queried.
Kiri, who reacted while interacting with journalists in Babura, the hometown of Governor Badaru Abubakar, said his party had no hand whatsoever in the arrest of the former governor.
According to him, APC has not even filed any petition against the embattled former governor.
He explained that the travails of Lamido began in 2012 when he led some governors to form the new PDP and betrayed former President Goodluck Jonathan.
