I never accused Buhari, El-Rufai of sponsoring Bandits – Nuhu Ribadu

Nuhu Ribadu, who is Ex-Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has denied claims he said Nigeria’s president, Muhammadu Buhari, and Kaduna State governor, Nasir El-Rufai, are the chief sponsors of bandits in the North.

On Thursday, Mr Ribadu said and described the statement going around the Social Media as “devilish insinuations.”

The alleged statement quoted Mr Ribadu to have said: “Bandits were created by Gen Mohammadu Buhari Rtd to oust Jonathan.”

He allegedly stated that Mr Buhari “assembled and brought in his ardent supporters, promoters and strategists in April 2014 to determine how to remove President Goodluck. Prominent amongst them were El-Rufai, Gen Danbazo (Rtd).”

“Specifically, Gen Buhari, in his address, said to the fighters that “the British handed Nigeria over to us, the Fulanis, at independence. The land (Nigeria) belongs to us. We must take back what belongs to us.”

In a statement by Mr Ribadu on Thursday, disowned the message going viral and made an appeal to security agencies to carry out an investigation of the genesis of the ‘fake message’ and fish out the perpetrators.

He stated, “I have never said or wrote anything like that being attributed to me,” urging the general public to disregard it.
