More confusion in Kogi vs NCDC war as family 'makes u-turn' says Kabba Chief Imam is alive

Recall the family of Chief Imam of Kabba, Kogi State, Sheikh Ahmad Abubakar Ejibunu, had earlier 'released a statement' through the Chief Tai Ejibunu, confirming the Chief Imam as died and also took sides with NCDC, warning the state Government to accept the obvious.

Well, there's now another report, this time through the 'same family' but via Alhaji Shaibu Adekunle Ejibunu, who claims to be the rightful spokesman of the family..

In a press statement, issued on Saturday, he said they received with utmost surprise, the insinuation that Chief Imam of Kabba, Sheikh Ahmad Ejibunu is dead.

“This is a blatant lie, falsehood from the pit of hell, orchestrated blackmail to tarnish the family image, the Kabba community and its people, our well-wishers as well as the goodwill of the
government of Kogi State on this issue.

“We debunked this in all its entirety. We pray that Almighty Allah be with our Imam, brother, community leader.

“Also we sincerely appreciate His Excellency, the Governor of Kogi State and the government for the concerns and supports, we thank the Obaro of Kabba, and all the other Ololu Obas for their continued prayers, all our leaders in Kabba and in the diaspora, the entire people of Kabba and Okun land.

“We are indeed grateful to all for this tremendous support for the Ejibunu family at this challenging time for the family. God bless you all.”
