Ex-governor of Borno State, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, has debunked the report that he secretly visited the Arm-laden Chad-bound Plane which was detained in Nigeria.
In statement issued by Sheriff he said; “Some few hours ago, my attention was drawn to a publication by the Premium Times on-line with a caption, “Ex-Borno Governor, Ali Modu Sheriff, In Secret Visit To Arms-laden Chad-bound Plane Detained In Nigeria.”
“I read the report with consternation, much as I felt scandalised to be linked again to an issue I absolutely knew nothing about.
‘‘For me, the publication has a ring of conspiracy meant to drag my name in the mud by some cowardly, malicious and unschooled political rivals who, in their little minds, love to engage ill-trained media persons to peddle lies against me.
“I, hereby, use this means to say to my adversaries anywhere they may be that their evil motives to soil my name and hard-earned reputation will not stand.’
