VIDEO: Man Whose Photo Went Viral For Prostrating Before Kogi Chief Of Staff Opens Up
Few weeks ago, photos of a man purported to be an elderly civil servant prostrating before Edward Onoja, the Chief of Staff to Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State went viral.
According to reports accompanying the viral photo, the man who was later identified Abdullahi Tahiru popularly known as “Alhaji APC” because of his love for the party said he prostrated before the Chief of Staff to beg for the release of his salary by the Kogi State Government.
But “Alhaji APC” who is said to be a grassroots politician from Olamaboro Local Government Area of the state in an interview with Inside Story denied the claim.
He said he is not an elderly man as claimed in the reports and that the reason for his prostration is an expression of joy for the motorcycle gifted to him Edward Onoja, a feat he said has not happened to him before despite being a strong supporter of past governments.
The video of the Inside Story interview with “Alhaji APC” is below:
