Gov Masari, Shema point fingers over foiled kidnap of ex gov

Ex-Gov Shema’s move to stop alleged N11bn fraud trial at Supreme Court fails

Troubled former governor of Katsina State, Ibrahim Shema, has blamed incumbent governor of the state, Aminu Masari, for masterminding a failed abduction attempt on his person at the premises of the Katsina High Court.

Shema accused Masari of deploying state and federal institutions to fight him, describing the underground moves as a witch-hunt intended to bring him down and discredit his deeds as former governor of the state.

However, Governor Masari has distanced himself from Shema’s claim saying he should stew in his own juice and defend his 22 count charge bordering on alleged financial misdemeanour of about N11 billion leveled against him and three others namely; Rufai Safana, Sani Makana and Lawal Dankaba.

Governor Masari replied Shema through his Senior Special Assistant on Media, Abdu Labaran, saying he had no hand in his trail and should bear his cross alone.

“If I remember well there was a time Shema went on air challenging and daring Masari to take him to court and now that the judicial process is taking its course, Shema is now blaming Masari in a situation Masari has no control or knowledge of,” he said.

Recall last Tuesday that operatives of the Economic and Financial Crime Commission EFCC barricaded the main exit of Katsina High Court before whisking away Shema out of the court premises.
