Nasiba Sani Dauda, the daughter of a Kaduna business mogul popularly known as ASD, has withdrawn her allegation against her former husband, Abubakar Musa, whom she accused of being a homosexual.
Recall that Nasiba had on November 12, 2019 published what could be described as a disparaging statement against her estranged husband and the Inspector-General of Police, IGP, Mohammed Adamu, claiming that the duo were friends and homosexuals.
She also accused her ex-husband of battery and sundry defamatory statements.
However, in a letter of apology sent to DAILY NIGERIAN on Thursday, Nasiba said these allegations were as a result of anger and frustration against Mr Abubakar who, according to her, had ordered the arrest and detention of “my father, my elder brother and other members of my family by the police”.
She, therefore, declared that her apologies were offered out of her own volition and free will, “as it was not under complete duress, intimidation and or influence of whatever kind from any quarter”.
Read the letter below:
