Alhaji Hamisu Balla, a.k.a Wadume ,the suspected Kidnap kingpin who was arrested by the Nigerian Police claimed All Progressive Congress (APC) gave him 13 million for presidential election while making confession .
But ruling party (APC) disowns the suspect and disassociated itself from his claims . National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Mallam Lanre Issa Onilu said ; “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. 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. From his purported confession, he claimed to be a PDP member before he went on to contest under another party.”
