Kassim Afegbua, a spokesperson for former military ruler, Ibrahim Babangida, said on Monday that he received no invitation from the police over a statement he signed on behalf of his principal Sunday afternoon.
“There’s nothing like that,” Mr. Afegbua, who had served as spokesperson for the former military ruler for over a decade, told Premium Times Monday afternoon. “It’s a cooked up story.”
“Are presidential sources the Nigerian police?” Mr, Afegbua added in response to some national dailies, who cited an unnamed presidency source as informing them of the purported moves by the police to arrest him.
The police have kept mum about the arrest reports, which had been circulating since Sunday evening.
