The Chairman of Abuja Municipal Area Council, Hon. Abdullahi Adamu Candido has said that he has taken every measure needed and necessary to ensure that no member of #ENDSARS protesters is attacked by hoodlums.
Candido, who stated this while reacting to allegations by one Nnamdi Achife on Twitter that he was one of the sponsors of the murderous thugs hacking protesters in the Abuja Municipality, said that nothing can be farther from the truth in such unfounded and devious allegations.
A statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Jibreel Muhammad Babangoshi states; “Our attention has been drawn to a fake news making the round on Twitter handle by one Nnamdi Achife alleging that the Chairman of Abuja Municipal Area Council, Hon. Abdullahi Adamu Candido is the Sponsor of the murderous thugs hacking protesters to death in Abuja.
“In view of the false accusations, let me be categorically make very clear here that Hon. Abdullahi Adamu Candido has been on ground as the Chairman of the Council to ensure the #ENDSARS protesters are not harmed in anyway and worked so hard to ensure that the city is peaceful”.
Babangoshi further said that the most Nigerians, who know and have come in contact with Candido appreciate and know how nationalistic and detribalized he is, adding that he has demonstrated so in his cabinet since he assumed office and also on various national discourse.
The statement further states; “As a good citizen who is not tribalistic nor a religious chauvinist, Candido preaches peace always as can be seen with in the link below
Candido therefore described the accusations as not only baseless but totally lacking in merit and authenticity.
The spokesman to Candido therefore urged Nigerians to ignore the false accusation just as he appealed to for confirmation of stories before jumping to conclusion.
He further said; “Confirm your report and its authenticity first before blackmailing people of high moral values in the society as such allegations will force you to prove it in a competent Court of Law”.
