NSA refutes claims of involvement in Emir's return

The Office of the National Security Adviser, NSA, has denied allegations that Nuhu Ribadu facilitated the return of the dethroned Emir of Kano, Aminu Ado Bayero to the state. 

Zakari Mijinyawa, the spokesperson for the NSA on Saturday, described the claim as "untrue”.

Earlier, the state Deputy Governor, Aminu Gwarzo, had accused Ribadu of aiding the return of the dethroned Emir.

Gwarzo stated in a short video interview at the Emir’s palace in Gidan Rumfa on Saturday, “The National Security Adviser gave two jets to bring the dethroned emir to Kano and to bring him to the place. We have not understood their intention.”

In response, Mijinyawa refuted the allegation, clarifying that Ribadu did not provide any aircraft.

 "I read the comments on social media, it is untrue. The NSA did not provide air transport to anyone to Kano," Mijinyawa stated.

He further urged politicians to be cautious in their statements, warning that misinformation could undermine the efforts of security agencies in maintaining peace. 

"Political actors should desist from misinforming the public as law enforcement officials in the state strive to maintain peace and order," Mijinyawa warned.
