The source alleged that they were being detained on the orders of Governor Yahaya Bello.

Governor Bello, through his Chief Press Secreatary Fanwo Kingsley, categorically denied being involved in any arrest of Mr. Audu’s relatives.

“The governor did not order the arrest of anybody. However, law enforcement agents are free to effect arrest when anyone infringes the law. If members of Audu family run foul of the law, they would not be spared just because they are members of Audu’s family.”
