Abdullahi addressed a press conference in Bauchi on Wednesday when he reacted to the statement of the State government justifying its action of demolishing his house.

Represented by his Secretary Ukkasha Hamza Rahama, Abdullahi described the state government’s demolition of the house as against the rule of law and abdication of its responsibility of protecting the life and property of its citizens.

He alleged that agents of the government caused grievous injuries to the security guards of the property in question without any provocation during the demolition of the property in contention.

He said the action of government is a confirmation that the state government does not value the sanctity of human life but pursuing a political vendetta against perceived enemies who are performing well more than what it is doing.

He clarifies that he owns the property through purchase from the original owner, as a deed of assignment was prepared between the original owner and Hon Yakubu Shehu Abdullahi, and duly registered after the Bauchi State government approved the consent to assign the property to Yakubu Shehu Abdullahi.
