Pro-Saraki Senator Denies Attack By Constituents, Says Social Media Giving Wrong Impression

Isa MisauThe Senator representing Bauchi Central District on the platform of All Progressives Congress, APC, Isa Hamma Misau, has denied social media reports that he was attacked by irate youth in Ningi area of his constituency at the weekend.
The senator, an ardent supporter of embattled Senate President Bukola Saraki, reportedly escaped the attack by a hair’s breadth, leaving behind his cap and one leg of his leather slippers as he fled.
The picture of the cap and slippers trended on social media.

But the Chairman, Senate Committee on Navy, in an interview on Monday, confirmed visiting Ningi on Saturday but denied the reported attack.
“I was in Ningi and other parts of my constituency on Saturday but I wasn’t attacked by anybody”, he said.
Senator Misau, who sponsored the Bill seeking to amend the Administration of Criminal Justice Act (ACJA) 2015 last week in the Senate, said the social media was giving the youth negative impression about happenings.
While denying ownership of the shoe and cap that went viral, Misau said no senator worth his onions will wear such items as they were of inferior quality.
“No Senator will wear such items because as Senators we go for qualitative items that befit our status. The cap is not a quality one, it is not more than N1,500 and so also the shoe.
“Go and check the video clips of our sittings and see whether you will see me wearing such kind of items”, he insisted.
