Abdullahi Adamu, the National chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has dismissed reports that he was stripped n#ked at the palace of the Emir of Lafia.
Adamu’s media aide Nata’ala Mohammed told reporters on Saturday that those spreading the rumour were being mischievous.
“A viral video of a man that was stripped n#ked on Thursday, December 8 at the Emir of Lafia’s palace, which was also insinuated and suspected to be the APC national chairman is false,” he said.
“It was the mere imagination of mischievous people who are unfamiliar with the physical looks of Senator Abdullahi Adamu.
“This unfortunate misplacement of the true physical look of the person of Adamu, is not in any way to be linked to him.”
Meanwhile, a pro-democracy group A .A Sule Progressives Forum has identified the man stripped in the video as its grand patron, Abubakar Giza, who holds the traditional title of Ciroman Giza.
The group condemned the act, stating that Giza was an elder statesman and an APC stalwart who has been a very strong pillar of support to the government of Nasarawa State.
It urged security agents to arrest those who dehumanised him.
