You didn’t call me, wife of the slain Army officer replies Atiku

The wife of the slain army officer , Lt Col Sakaba , has denied receiving any call from the presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar.

Late Sakaba was one of the 44 soldiers killed by Boko Haram insurgents during an attack on 157 Task Force Battalion in Metele, Borno State last month.

Atiku had claimed on Twitter @Atiku on Sunday that he spoke with the widow of the late soldier.

He wrote:  “This Christmas I urge all Nigerians to spare a thought for our military on the frontlines of the war on terror. “I had cause to telephone Lt. Col. Ibrahim Sakaba’s widow this Yuletide. I am touched by her devotion and love for her husband who paid the supreme sacrifice for Nigeria.”

The PUNCH however reported on Monday that the widow, Seun, who spoke to their correspondent, said that she never received any call from Atiku.

She claimed Atiku lied, saying: “Why the lies? I have not received any call from Atiku please,” she said.
