The woman is believed to be a wife of the immediate past executive secretary of NJC and chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Alh. Danladi Halilu Envuluanza(aka C.R).
It was learnt that she set the trap for Godiya’s embarrassment who has been on her neck since last year.
Meanwhile, the lawmaker’s camp has denied the report that he was trying to have sex with a politician’s wife.

Godiya who currently represents Eggon West in NSHA was on Friday reportedly stripped naked at gunpoint.
Thugs believed to be heavily armed beat him to stupor at the Maitama’s residence of Alh. Danladi Halilu Envuluanza after he honored the wife’s invitation for a dinner to celebrate his latest electoral feat.
Sadly however the dinner’s invitation was with a different motive. According to an eyewitness, Hon. Godiya upon arrival met the shock of his life as unknown men seized him.
The eyewitness, a neighbor narrated that the victim was beaten, stripped naked and photographed to smear his public repute.
His pockets were emptied by the assailants who rained all sort of insults on him most notably ‘banza arne’, which literally means ‘unbeliever’ in Hausa, a spoken language of northern Nigerians.
Godiya who was unconscious for minutes after severe beating was earlier urging for calm.
He promised to sweep the matter under the carpet if set free. The passionate appeal however fell on deaf ears. His clothe were tore and footwears taken away, leaving him naked and barefooted.
A call by unknown person who reported the incident to the security saved Godiya from the hands of the abductors. He has been rushed to an undisclosed hospital for medical attention.
