A former chairman of Borno State Emergency Management Agency, Grema Terab, on Thursday denied any connection with any group campaigning for the election of former President Goodluck Jonathan in 2019.
He also denied sending text message inviting people to attend any gathering in support of the former president.
Earlier on Thursday, the state secretary of the APC, Bello Ayuba, had distanced the party from Mr. Terab, saying he is not a registered member of APC.
The party scribe alleged they were shocked on Wednesday night when they received messages on their mobile phones from Mr Terab, calling on Northern youths to join the launching of Bring-Back-Goodluck-Jonathan in 2019.
But in a swift reaction, Mr. Terab denied circulating the message, saying he would take legal action against those attributing the “malicious text message” to him.
“It has come to my notice, the circulation of a malicious text message allegedly claimed to be signed by me, Grema Terab.
“Please disregard such text message because it did not emanate from me and I do not know anything about the purported event.
“This is only a cowardly, cheap and slanderous attempt to blackmail my personality. Meanwhile my lawyers have already informed the relevant authorities to investigate the matter,” he said in a statement.
