The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has denied the claim by the alleged notorious kidnapper, Hamisu Balla, a.k.a Wadume, that the party made a sum of N13 million available to him during the last presidential elections.
Wadume has been in the middle of the raging storm between the Nigerian Army and the Nigeria Police over the murder of three police operatives and two civilians by soldiers in Ibi town, Taraba State.
An Army Captain in charge of the 93 Battalion, Wukari was also alleged to have aided his escape after his initial arrest by the police.
Wadume in his statement made to the Police after he was re-arrested in Kano had confessed collecting N6m from a sitting governor on the platform of the People’s Democratic Party, N13m from APC in the last presidential election and defrauded a civil servant of N30m.
But the APC national secretariat on Saturday night denied knowledge of the claim.
Onilu declared that his party “would never allocate money for kidnappers and murderers.”
