The state Commissioner for Information and Reorientation, Barr. Danjuma Adamu who was reacting to the allegation made by the Senator representing Taraba South at the National Assembly said it is clearly that Sen. Emmanuel Bwacha was defending the arrest of a group called ” Bwacha Brought Ups”.

“The purported writer claimed that the youth “were mischievously lured by the governor to jalingo” before they were whisked away by the police for an illegal detention for a bailable offence.

“No wonder, he is trying to defend the indefensible as the law is already taking its course.

” In view of this falsehood, the Taraba State Government is compelled to react and clarify the issue”. Said Adamu.

The Commissioner maintained that Governor Darius Ishaku has always been a promoter of the principles of separation of powers and cannot do anything to interfere in the duties of the Nigerian police or the Judicial arm of government.

According to him, it will be a preposterous for the Governor to descend himself so law to meddle and influence the action of the police in the state.

“The police are trained to detect and fight crime and criminality as this is their constitutional responsibility, which is exactly what they have done in this case.

“The sponsors of the youth, particularly Senator Emmanuel Bwacha has anything against the action of the police for the arrest and detention of the 14 youths, he should go to the court to seek redress.” The Commissioner alleged.

“The Garage Governor stands too gain nothing from the arrest and detention of the youth and the Taraba State Government wants to advise those trying to drag the Governor into the issue to look elsewhere”

” Governor Darius Ishaku’s concern at all time is the promotion of security, regality, peace and progress of Taraba State. This has been his focus since he assumed power in May 2015 and he will continue to do so, by the grace of God.” The Commissioner concluded.
