Isa Funtua, a close friend and ally of President Muhammadu Buhari died on Monday during a routine doctor’s visit.
The news of his death left the Presidency in a mournful mood as big wigs in the government paid tribute to him.
Presidential candidate of the AAC and publisher of Sahara Reporters, Omoyele Sowore, in reaction to Funtua’s death took to his Instagram page to post a video recounting how the late Funtua, Garba Shehu And others tried to negotiate with him while he was in detention last year.
Reacting to this video, the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the President, Garba Shehu, took to his Twitter to slam Sowore, saying he had nothing to gain from besmirching the memory of a dead soul. He then proceeded to five his own account of what really happened that day.
