DSS quizzes former governor, five others over anti-Buhari comments


The Department of State Security Services (DSS) yesterday quizzed former Adamawa State Governor Jibrilla Bindow for convening a meeting against President Muhammadu Buhari.

The agency also grilled five others namely:  former Speaker of Adamawa House of AssemAdministrator bly Kabiru Mijinyawa; the acting APC Chairman, Yola South, Alhaji Sulaiman Adamu; former Sole of  Yola West  Development Area Abubakar Umar Sirimbai; a former Commissioner Mustapha Barkindo Aliyu Mustapha; and a former adviser in the Bindow administration, Alhaji Yusha’u Adamu.

The ex-governor, who admitted that he was invited and interrogated by the DSS, said he “cautioned members making those unwarranted utterances thrice” at the meeting.

But the invitation has generated political tension in Adamawa following the leakage of an audio tape of the meeting.

It was learnt that Bindow was grilled at about 2.50pm yesterday on alleged plot against the President on account of an audiotape in circulation.

The ex-governor last week convened a meeting on the way forward for the APC in Yola South in Adamawa Central Senatorial District as part of his preparations for another governorship bid in 2023.

It was gathered that the meeting had hardly started when some of those invited started pouring invectives on President Buhari.”

The outbursts against the President became intense. One of them at the session secretly recorded the discussion.

The audiotape was leaked.
