Former Yobe governor and currently serving senator, Bukar Ibrahim has finally reacted to a viral video of him in sexual relations with two ladies. In an exclusive interview with Premium Times, he said, “This is a personal, private matter. What does my having been with a girl have to do with the public? You know the normal thing: people ask for unreasonable things, and if you deny them, they try to blackmail you if they have a way. If they say I raped, that’s a different matter altogether. Is it because I am a public official then I am not supposed to be entitled to private life? They just mentioned it to me as a joke and I took it as nothing really serious. This is something that happened between two adults. I have commenced investigations to find out why it is circulating, but from all indications, it is a blackmail.”The short video showed him wearing his clothes, and two unknown ladies in the room. The lady who sent in the video said she did so after a female high school student allegedly went missing after having an affair with him. He mentioned that he knew one of the ladies was filming, but he was told it was for fun and also to illuminate the room.
