The All Progressives Congress on Saturday distanced itself from kidnap suspect, Hamisu Wadume, saying he got no N13m from the party.
Hamisu Bala aka Wadume had claimed in media reports that he got N13m from the APC for campaign fund during the general election but spent only N7m.
But in a statement by APC, National Publicity Secretary, Lanre Issa-Onilu, on Saturday challenged him to name his sponsor, saying it would never allocate money to kidnappers and murderers.
The statement said, “It is expected that the alleged kidnapper, having come face to face with justice, would throw whatever he could lay his hands on into the fray.
“In any case, our party did not have a budget for thugs. Unlike the period when the ruling party dipped hands into the public treasury to fund political campaigns and elections, APC had to rely on its own resources,’’ said the statement.
“Even if we had all the money, we would never allocate money for kidnappers and murderers. That era ended with PDP.
“Perhaps, he can name whoever gave him money. Definitely, it was not APC.”
