After a video surfaced online on Wednesday, August 4 with claims that Babagana Zulum, Governor of Borno State and his predecessor Senator Kashim Shettima paid a solidarity visit to the embattled police officer who has been indicted in the Hushpuppi fraud case, they both denied the reports of visiting the suspended cop.
In a statement released by Governor Zulum’s spokesperson, Isa Gusau said that the governor and his predecessor do not know the residence of embattled DCP Abba Kyari, let alone visiting him.
He also said that the video circulating was recorded by some associates of Abba Kyari at the residence of Senator Kashim Shettima in Abuja on June 30, 2021, when Abba Kyari paid an empathy visit to Shettima following the mischievous circulation of rumours that the Senator had died in the UK and that Kyari himself had shared the same video on his verified Facebook wall on June 30, shortly after he visited Shettima.
Isa released a video of some sympathizers who had also visited the Senator the same period, which showed the senator receiving them in his house, the same place being described as Abba Kyari’s house. He also pointed 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.
