Naked Photos: I Never Meant To Blackmail Lawmaker With Nude Pictures, Governor Cries Out

Governor Muhammed Abubakar of Bauchi State

BAUCHI: Governor Mohammed Abubakar of Bauchi State has dismissed a claim by a member of the state House of Assembly, Maryam Begal that he intends to blackmail her by exposing her nude photographs.

Begal, who contested the Bauchi South District Senatorial bye-election, allegedly claimed that Abubakar was behind those intent on “humiliating” her by portraying her as “immoral”.

She allegedly claimed that the governor’s agents were in possession of her nude photographs which were superimposed onto other pornographic images.

Begal was said to have claimed that an envelope filled with copies of the photo-shopped nude pictures was delivered to her, followed by a phone call and warning to “desist” from being “antagonistic” to the Abubakar administration else the images would be made public.

But, the governor, in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Strategy, Ali M. Ali, described Begal’s allegations “fantastic claims”.

It reads: “We found this amusing. At no point did Bagel constitute a ‘threat’ or even a ‘nuisance’ to the government of MA Abubakar to the extent that it will resort to this reprehensible measure.

“The governor has a cast iron reputation of moral uprightness. His moral credentials are beyond reproach.  It is, therefore, inconceivable that he will encourage let alone sponsor such desperate measure.

“He has repeatedly and publicly stated that he bears no ill-will or malice against anyone especially antagonistic elements. The upliftment   and progress of Bauchi State is his main focus.

“The frolics of a desperate attention seeker will not distract him from his grim determination to change the depressing narrative of our state. The governor is currently on hajj and is praying for the development of the state and nation in general.

“We strongly suspect that Bagel is resorting to this hallucinatory measure to deal with her electoral humiliation in the recent Senatorial bye-election in Bauchi South District. She is looking for a fall guy.

“The media should be weary of sensational claims of desperate politicians as we approach elections.”
