A Former Adamawa State governor, Alhaji Mohammed Jibrilla Bindow, has been questioned by the Department of State Services, over an audio clip from an All Progressives Congress (APC) reconciliation meeting where President Muhammadu Buhari was allegedly wished dead by a chieftain of the party.
Global Village Extra had reported that APC chairman in Yola South LGA of the state, Sulaiman Adamu was suspended on Tuesday August 10 over the leaked audio in which he and another chieftain allegedly wished President Buhari had died at the peak of the COVID-19.
A source familiar with the matter told Daily Trust that Bindow was at the DSS office in Yola on Wednesday.
After being interrogated and referred to the service headquarters in Abuja, the former governor was said to have left for Abuja immediately.
In a statement issued by Sadiq Abdullateef, the Special Assistant on Media to the former governor, Bindow stated that he threatened to leave the venue of the meeting when the statement was being made by the chieftains.
The former Governor also claimed that the viral audio was mischievously doctored to remove his words of caution.
The suspended APC Chairman who spoke in Fulfide in the leaked audio, lambasted President Buhari for ditching politicians who made sacrifices for him during the elections.
Adamu said, “I don’t know why coronavirus did not kill Buhari. If the president is placed side by side with Osinbajo I will pick Osinbajo and leave him.”
