Senator Isa Misau, yesterday, denied reports that he was stoned, weekend, by his constituents for purportedly working against President Muhammadu Buhari.
Misau, who represents Bauchi Central on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, was reportedly attacked for his staunch support for the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, said to be against Buhari’s interest.
But the senator, in a statement, yesterday, said nothing of such happened even as he admitted that he was in his constituency at the weekend.
He said: ”The news rapidly gaining attention in the media about a purported incidence at Ningi Local Government Area, Bauchi State, while I was on a routine consultation exercise with party leaders and constituents in Bauchi Central Senatorial District, has come to my notice.
“While it is true that I did visit Ningi as part of my constituency activities over the weekend, there was no incidence of violence against me as fictitiously reported by an online news agency, which alleged that I was stoned by my constituents. It simply did not happen.”
