The Speaker of Nigeria’s House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara has written to the country’s Inspector General of Police and the Director-General of the Department of State Services (DSS) alleging that the Bauchi State Governor, Mohammed Abubakar was plotting to implicate him in criminal conspiracy.

In a letter dated March 21, Dogara told IGP Mohammed Adamu and the DSS DG, Yusuf Bichi that he has credible information of an ongoing plot to give motorbikes and cars branded in his name to some criminals.

Dogara and Governor Abubakar fell out shortly after the 2015 general elections but their animosity worsened in the buildup to the supplementary election in Bauchi.

The Speaker is throwing his weight behind the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bala Mohammed, who secured the highest votes cast in the March 9 election which was declared inconclusive.

“I write to inform the Inspector General of Police that I am in receipt of credible intelligence about an ongoing plot by Bauchi State government to implicate me in a criminal conspiracy.

“The Bauchi State government has procured hundreds of motorbikes and cars which are being branded in the Government House Bauchi, with my pictures and logo of my party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and my name inscribed.

“The plan is that the Bauchi State government will engage some criminal elements and give them the branded motorbikes and cars which they will use to commit crime and thereafter abandon them at the scene so as to implicate me.

“I am, by this letter putting the Police and other security agencies on notice so as to be on the watch out for these criminal elements intended to be deployed by Bauchi State Government,” Dogara said in the letter.
