Sahara Reporters had published a report earlier today claiming Yola was arrested last week on the order of the President for defrauding a businessman of N300 million with the promise to help him secure an oil bloc.
Speaking with Premium Times, Mr Yola said he was shocked at the reports. He said:
“As we speak, I am in the President’s office and I was with him last night. I simply don’t know or understand who is behind these malicious rumours.”
He added that he had never been involved in any Fraudulent act. Also speaking on the report, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Shehu Garba, said there was no truth in the report.
