Abubakar Musa, the embattled husband of Nasiba, the daughter of Kaduna business mogul, Sani Dauda popularly known as ASD, has denied all the allegations his wife posted on her social media handle, saying that these claims were concocted to satisfy her emotions.
A statement sent to DAILY NIGERIAN by Mr Abubakar’s lawyer, Rilwan Umar, said it is necessary and compelling to place in proper perspectives the true position of things and set the records straight.
The statement read in part: “Following a misleading, false, and contemptuous write up being circulated in the media by Nasiba Sani Dauda and due to the weighty allegations and misrepresentation of facts stated therein; it is necessary and compelling to place in proper perspectives the true position of things and set the records straight.
“It is important to state with all emphasis and unequivocally that the marriage was not dissolved and the case is on appeal in the court of competent jurisdiction.
“As a law-abiding citizen, it will be subjudice to discuss a case in court but it is important to state that from all evidences and indications, there is no grounds for the dissolution of the marriage. They have no right to remarry on top of an existing marriage.
“In fact, Abubakar only challenged the purported dissolution of the marriage on the grounds that, due process was not adhered to, in line with Islamic Injunction.
“Moreover, an Upper Sharia court was said to have quashed the ruling of the Lower Sharia court, exploited by Nasiba and one Auwalu Falalu to illegally dissolve the marriage.
“Also in their desperate bid to subvert the course of injustice, Nasiba and her cohorts approached the Sharia court of Appeal Kaduna, insisting on the dissolved marriage as pronounced by the lower court.
“It will interest you to know that Nasiba and her co-conspirator reportedly approached a court in Abuja, on 10th October, 2019, on the same matter.”
While dismissing the allegation that he initiated the arrest of Nasiba’s father and three other persons, Mr Abubakar’s lawyer said the arrest followed a report by a group of people who were physically assaulted by the family, “for challenging a plan to illegally remarry her to another person despite the on-going litigations.
“Sadly, in other to sensationalise and draw public sympathy, Nasiba went ahead to disparage the IGP, ostensibly to blackmail the Nigeria Police Force, for towing the line of justice.
“It is still shocking what Nasiba seeks to gain by intentionally trying to denigrate the person and office of the number one Police chief, in a controversial case that started in 2017, about two years before his appointment,” Mr Umar said.
On Nasiba’s allegation that Mr Abubakar subjected her to physical and emotional assault, the lawyer said the allegations were only appalling and totally unacceptable.
According to him, Abubakar has never physically or emotionally assaulted her before and he has no intention of assaulting her in the future.
“However, on the contrary, the assault and the threat have been to his life and that of his friends which have been orchestrated by Nasiba,” he added.
According to the lawyer, Nasiba’s alleged blackmail about the sexual orientation of Mr Abubakar has hit the brick wall and it is dead on arrival.
He said: “Abubakar is not a homosexual, has never been and will NEVER be. All these allegations have gone further to show her desperation and intention to muddle up facts just to satisfy her emotions.
“It is totally unacceptable that Nasiba will attempt to tarnish Abubakar’s character and reputation for whatever reason or gains and has been sued for defamation of character.
“Finally, for all those who have been in contact with Abubakar, they will objectively attest to his personality and behaviours.
“Hence, there is no iota of truth in Nasiba’s ‘tales by moonlight’ write up. It is only attention-seeking and it should be disregarded in its entirety,” Mr Umar added.
