The Gombe State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), on Thursday, explained why it petitioned the police to arrest Mohammed Adamu Yayari, an aide of Senator Danjuma Goje.
Addressing press conference in Gombe Thursday, state publicity secretary of APC, Mr Moses Kyari, said the party took the action because Yayari exaggerated the number of party’s exco-members that resigned last week.
He alleged that Yayari’s post about the purported resignation was orchestrated by Goje and “hatched” at the house of his aides, Danjuma Babayo.
According to him, the executives were coerced to a meeting at the residence of Babayo, “where they solicited for the cooperation and loyalty of the executives to Senator Goje, but no issue of resignation of offices was raised or adopted, but to our utter dismay, Mohammed Yayari went on social media to broadcast outright lies.”
Kyari explained that the party petitioned the police after the APC executives from the Yamaltu/Deba LGA wrote a formal complaint against the duo of Babayo Danjuma and Mohammed Yayari, “for ‘maliciously’ saying over 80 per cent of executives in Yamaltu/Deba LGA of the state have resigned.
The APC spokesman said Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya was not involved in the arrest of the Goje’s aide.
