While speaking to the BBC Pidgin, the Editor-In-Chief of Daily Nigerian, Jaafar Jaafar, denied authoring the release of the latest video.
"Dis latest release no be from me but I get a copy of dat one too. Wetin I think say happen be say along di way some pipo don also get access to di videos. And dis one like di oda ones na correct video and e show say wetin we tok about Ganduje na true."
Findings by PRNigeria indicate that the embattled publisher who recently honoured the invitation of the Kano State House of Assembly investigating the bribery scandal revealed that Jaafar Jaafar tendered several videos to the lawmakers.
“I swore an oath with the Holy Quran before tendering the several videos at the Kano State Assembly and I could not have been responsible for the current video trending on social media. Therefore Daily Nigerian did not release any other video after the appearance before lawmakers,” Jaafar said.
Before the appearance of the publisher at the Kano State House Assembly, Daily Nigerian had published two videos showing the governor receiving bundles of dollars and putting them into his white dress known as ‘babanriga’ in the northern part of Nigeria.
The latest trending video shows Ganduje allegedly receiving kickback from contractors, speaking audibly on those who have paid and others outstanding.
The unedited trending video exposed the names of contractors, projects and the voice of the purported bribe giver.
It also has the translation in English with dates and timelines. This time around, Governor Ganduje appeared in Black Kaftan with his clear voice and that of the bribe giver.
Unlike the previous videos officially released by Daily Nigerian, the latest trending videos are suspected to have been released by other parties who could have had access to them after copies were released on request to critical stakeholders, especially security agencies and Kano State House of Assembly.
