I Didn’t Beat My Orderly, Accusation Aimed At Denting My Image, Says Adamawa Speaker


YOLA/By Tom Garba, Yola – The speaker, Adamawa State House of Assembly, Kabiru Mijinyawa has described as untrue media reports alleging that he beat up his police orderly, saying it a scheme of political enemies to cause public disaffection for him in the state.

Mr. Mijinyawa said the report is baseless, false, unfounded, malicious and an effort to dent his image in the eyes of the general public.

The Speaker spoke in a statement  by the Adamawa House of Assembly’s public relations officer (PRO), Yahaya Mohammed Daji, made available to journalist in Yola said on Saturday.

“As a Legislator, he has utmost respect for the rule of law and will not carry out such dastardly act against anybody let alone that of a police officer attached to me.”

Mijinyawa in a telephone interview further explained that the story as reported by other medium is smearing and witch hunting to discourage him from performing his legislative functions to the people of Adamawa State.

“If it is not so, tell me why can’t they report it the way is? Why can’t the media hear my other side of the story?  Didn’t you feel its just an attempt to destroy my political career? In Sha Allah, my God will not let them be,” he said

Adding: “How can a rational human being, somebody of my type to stoop low to beat a police officer, it is embarrassing to my office, my personality and the people I’m representing and my state.

“I have never denied anybody attached to my office his or her their entitlements, we are best of friends with any domestic security and even my supporting staff in the office, why should people cook up story from the moon against me?”

“I’m out to serve my people (Adamawa state) and the ranting of my enemies will never succeed.” Kabiru added
