A viral video of Abba Kyari in a palatial home did not happen at the suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police’s house.
An aide to the former governor of Borno State, Kashim Shettima, Malam Isa Gusau clarified that the video was taken when Kyari paid a courtesy visit to the erstwhile governor in Borno in June this year.
Gusau said he is expecting Kyari to make the clarification since the video was posted on his Facebook page and passed off as his house.
Gusau said he resorted to issuing the clarification since Abba Kyari who promised to issue 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, 2021, 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. See link to Kyari’s Facebook post.
Kyari who hails from Borno State and in Shettima’s constituency visited the former Governor to wish him well like many others had 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 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.
The spokesman called on Abba Kyari to issue a similar clarification as he had promised when the spokesman called 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.
Please see the video of a visit by other sympathizers, link to Kyari’s post on June 30, 2021, and compare it with the same video in circulation, claiming Zulum and Shettima had visited Kyari
