Sheriff said the appearance of his campaign posters in strategic places across the country was the handiwork of mischief-makers.

The statement reads, “It has come to the notice of Senator Ali-Modu Sheriff, a former two-term governor of Borno State that a serving senator has again started his propaganda war against his person, insinuating and making up infantile allegations against him.

“This is especially with regard to a campaign poster in circulation purporting that Sheriff is running for the presidency in 2023 with a popular politician from the South-South and the allegations that he is into arms deals.

“We, therefore, warn that he stops all such negative propaganda war against the respected Senator Ali-Modu Sheriff forthwith, else we will be forced to take legal actions against him and his co-travellers.

“Sen. Ali-Modu Sheriff disassociates himself from the campaign posters currently in circulation in parts of the country and any form of arms dealing.”
