Senator-elect for Nasarawa North Senatorial District, Mr Godiya Akwashiki, who was reportedly beaten for allegedly sleeping with politician’s wife, has spoken out on the issue.
Akwashiki was accused of attempting to sleep with another politician from the state, Mr Danladi Envuluanza’s wife.
According to a report by Sunday Sun, shortly after Mr Godiya Akwashiki was released from the police station, he told reporters he had never met Envuluanza’s wife in his life and wondered how he would attempt to sleep with someone he had never met before.
He said that the incident was a set up by the politician to embarrass him having failed in his bid to stop his election to the Senate.
He maintained that there was no truth about the story, noting that it was Envuluanza himself that called him to meet him at the hotel to mend political fences, stressing that he did not know he had arranged thugs to disgrace him.
FCT Commissioner of Police, Bala Ciroma, confirmed that the police was investigating the case of a man beaten by some persons for allegedly sleeping with another man’s wife.
“There was a case that was reported and we are investigating it. We don’t know the truth or otherwise of the case. It is only investigations that will reveal all we need to know,” he said.
