The Special Adviser to Governor of Kano State on Religious Affairs, Ali Muhammad Alibaba, has apologized for lying against Kwankwaso after he was grilled by the police.
Alibaba on a recent radio programme in Kano had linked the ownership of Aliko Oil Company Limited to the former governor of the state, Rabiu Kwankwaso.
He challenged Kwankwaso to come out and swear to an oath that he is not the owner of the company.
Alibaba even alluded to the company’s red and white theme similarity to Kwankwaso’s political symbol.
Frustrated by the allegation, the management of Aliko Oil, on Thursday, filed a complaint against Alibaba at the Kano State Police Command headquarters in Bompai.
The command invited AliBaba for questioning and consequently detained him.
After hours of interrogation, the command later released him on bail, with a condition of withdrawing the comments on the same radio station where he made the allegation.
On Sunday, Alibaba featured on the radio station, withdrew the false allegation, and apologized to the company for linking its ownership to the former governor.
