The Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, National Caretaker Committee, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, has accused the factional leader of the Party, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, of creating terrorist group, Boko Haram that has killed thousands of people in the North Eastern part of the country.
Sheriff on Thursday had claimed that Makarfi deployed hired Fulani herdsmen to chase out his team from the party’s National Secretariat.
“The herdsmen were brought to the secretariat by the caretaker committee chairman, Senator Ahmed Makarfi.
“We thank God, the national secretary and the national auditor narrowly escaped,” Sheriff had said.
But Makarfi in his reaction alleged that Sheriff was known to be violent, reason the police withdrew his security details.
Makarfi said, “Sheriff is the one known to have created Boko Haram, therefore, he is continuing in similar direction.
“I’m never known to be associated with violence. He made same malicious allegation before the former IGP and DG SSS which was disregarded as baseless. On the contrary, I was there and then given official additional security,” he said.
The former Kaduna State Governor revealed that due to Sheriff’s violent attitude, the police withdrew his security details.
“The police had withdrawn all his security both in Maiduguri and Abuja because of his actions. He had to beg in front of all and after agreeing to take the path of peaceful resolution before they agreed to return some to him.
“As I speak to you he reneged on that peaceful resolution and resorted to filing more cases before courts and has refused appointing his four-member delegation.
“So you media should know who thrives in violence. If you have record of that press statement I will sue him,” he said.
