The Department of State Security Services, DSS invited a former governor of Adamawa State, Jibrilla Bindow over a controversial audiotape where some APC executives were criticising the President.
One of the executives was even heard wishing for the President’s death.
Bindow alongside five others namely Kabiru Mijinyawa, Abubakar Umar Sirimbai, a former commissioner, Yusha’u Adamu, former speaker Adamawa house of assembly; Sulaiman Adamu, the acting APC chairman Yola south and Mustapha Barkindo, former adviser to Bindow.
DSS operatives grilled them for hours.
Speaking on the situation, Bindow’s media aide, Sadiq Abdullateef, who also confirmed the DSS invitation, disclosed on Wednesday afternoon that his principal has since condemned the statements against the President.
The statement read in part: ”Former Adamawa State Governor, Senator Muhammad Umar Jibrilla Bindow was invited to a party meeting because some members of the party were aggrieved about the just concluded primaries, which he attended as an elder of the party,”
”It’s worthy of note that, there was no program in the said meeting, he went there and sat and listened to the aggrieved members’ complains, and there was an unwarranted outburst from some members which he cautioned, it’s sad that some people are using that outburst with a recording to malign the former governor.”
“The said recording was doctored and if you listened to it very well, there are some conversations that were skipped, Senator Bindow cautioned the members making those unwarranted utterances thrice in the meeting and even threatened to walk out.”
“His words were, ‘please this is not right, you don’t wish anybody death because of political reasons, talk less of our leader and father, the president. Let’s make progress please, or I am leaving’.”
