Mutfwang distances self from alleged $5m bribery to judges

Plateau Governor Caleb Mutfwang has rejected and distanced himself from media reports alleging that some judges gathered $5 million to overturn his election.

Mr Mutfwang denounced the accusation in a statement made on Friday in Jos by his Director of Press and Public Affairs, DOPPA, Gyang Bere.

The governor, who called the claim false, said the effort was intended to cause strife between him and the famous jurists.

”I strongly condemn the baseless and defamatory allegations being circulated by certain individuals, accusing judges of receiving a $5 million bribe for the nullification of my election.

”This is a deliberate actions of my detractors aimed at sowing seed of discord between myself, the esteemed judges and other constituted authorities.

”I wish to distance myself from the false narrative; it a mere fabrication crafted by individuals who are being manipulated as pawns by the opposition party in Plateau.

”This latest move is an attempt to tarnish the image of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)-led government in Plateau and such malicious actions will not deter my commitment and confidence in the Judiciary,” the governor said.

Mr Mutfwang called on security agencies to conduct a thorough investigation into the matter, identify and apprehend those responsible for the publication.
