Mr. Anayo Okelue, lawyer to the publisher, revealed in a petition he wrote to the Assistant Commissioner of Police, Compliant Response Unit, at the Force Headquarters, Abuja against SP Abubakar.
Anayo revealed that while Abdullahi, who is a journalist, was building up narrative and also digging to unveil on an ugly cruelty reported to him by one Ramatu Adamu Mohammed against her person and her three kids by SP Muhammed Abubakar on January 1, 2023 he received a text massage from the policeman threatening to deal with the publisher and also boasted that he was monitoring Abdullahi’s conversations adding he will get at him in a no distance time.
As if not done, while Abdullahi was still grappling with the text massage other unknown phone numbers started calling him as a result of which he now lives in fear and can no longer go about his normal business as a result of all this development.
The lawyer urged the Police Commissioner to carry out prompt investigation into the matter so that this ugly incident is curtailed saying Abdullahi’s health is deteriorating and requires urgent medical attention.
