sky news africa Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri,


Alleged blackmail against the person of Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri, Nigeria’s northeastern Adamawa State Governor, was on Friday put to rest as his accusers exposed themselves when money paid for the blackmail became an issue to share.

$10,000 (N4.5milion) being the money paid to them by their paymasters became an instrument that led to their mask unveiling as greed became a vehicle that drove them into the hands of Governor Fintiri our correspondent gathered from a local blogger.

The Blogger said one Hassaini Nakura who is the masterminder after receiving money meant for the job from his pay masters decided to give only N200, 000 to one Mr. Lois who doctored the Governor’s vioce.

“It is said that Lois is letting loose of the secret behind the deal since he is being short changed as could be deduced from a leaked phone conversation which he was having with Mr. Nakura, demanding for a fair share of the money”.

The Blogger further reports that Mr. Nakura had claimed in a recorded voice call made available on social media that Governor Fintiri was threatening him in a telephone conversation he had with him.

However a group under the aegis of Adamawa Global Trustees had sued Husseini Nakura who is the Chairman Adamawa Concern Citizen over alleged forgery of the Governor’s voice.

Adamawa Global Trustees had asked the court to compel Mr. Nakura to produce the original call data recorded CVR between him and the Governor or summon MTN the country’s giant network provider, to produce the original CVR, the blogger said.
