Borno State Governor Babagana Zulum and his predecessor, Senator Kashim Shettima do not know the residence of embattled Deputy Commissioner of Police, DCP Abba Kyari, let alone visit him.


Zulum’s spokesman, Isa Gusau who clarified this in a statement said he resorted to issuing the clarification since Abba Kyari who promised to give the clarification himself did not do so, more than four hours after making the promise to the spokesman.

Isa Gusau said, a video in circulation, was recorded by some associates of Abba Kyari at the residence of Senator Kashim Shettima in Abuja, on June 30, when Abba Kyari paid an empathetic visit to Shettima, following the mischievous circulation of rumours, that the Senator had died in the UK. 

Kyari himself had shared the same video on his verified Facebook wall on June 30, shortly after he visited Shettima.

The statement said, Kyari who hails from Borno State and in Shettima’s constituency, visited the former governor to wish him well like many others who visited the Senator during the time. 

Gusau released a video of some sympathizers who had also visited the Senator during the same period, which showed the senator receiving them in his house, the same place being described as Abba Kyari’s house.  

Gusau also asked observers to take note of the TV behind Zulum and Abba Kyari, with a CNN breaking news, on the release of American Comedian-actor, Bill Cosby, which, as can be verified by anyone online, happened on June 30, 2021. 

The spokesman called on Abba Kyari to issue a similar clarification as he had promised, when the spokesman drew his attention to the misrepresentation, given the fact it was Kyari himself who took that video and released it on his Facebook page on June 30, 2021.
