In a leaked audio obtained by DAILY NIGERIAN on Saturday, Kaduna State governor, Nasir El-Rufai, said he was happy that a former president, Umaru Musa Yar’Adua, died because he heard that the late president planned to inject him with HIV and Hepatitis virus.
Responding to a question in what appeared to be a question-and-answer session, Mr El-Rufai clarified the caller’s question, insisting that he was happy Mr Yar’Adua died.
“Now, regarding the question about Umaru Yar’Adua, yes, I am grateful to God because I am alive and Umaru is dead. Because he wanted me killed.
“You know, there are plans to inject me with a combination of Hepatitis and HIV if I return to Nigeria.
“This is what I heard. I don’t know whether it is true or not true. But the fact that I am alive and he is dead, I should be grateful to God. Everyone has his own fate and destiny”, Mr El-Rufai said.
This newspaper could not independently establish the date and place the audio was recorded.
Last week, DAILY NIGERIAN exclusively reported how El-rufai warned his political enemies at a Kaduna APC stakeholders meeting held at Murtala Mohammed Square, Kaduna, saying that: “I had fought with two presidents, Umaru Yar’Adua ended up in his grave, while President Goodluck Jonathan ended up in Otueke”.
