“If they say I raped, that’s a different matter”- Senator Bukar Ibrahim on viral video



Senator Bukar Ibrahim

Former Yobe governor and serving senator (Yobe East) Bukar Ibrahim has reacted to a viral video of him in an alleged sexual affair with two ladies.

He responded in an exclusive interview with Premium Times.

The short video showed him wearing his clothes, and two unknown ladies in the room.

He says it’s his private life and he hasn’t committed any crime since no one accused him of rape.

However, the lady who sent in the video said she did so after a female high school student allegedly went missing after having an affair with him.

He mentioned that he knew one of the ladies was filming, but he was told it was for fun and also to illuminate the room.

He concluded that he will investigate the matter, as he is sure it is a case of blackmail.

He said:

This is a personal, private matter. What does my having been with a girl have to do with the public?

You know the normal thing: people ask for unreasonable things, and if you deny them, they try to blackmail you if they have a way.

If they say I raped, that’s a different matter altogether. Is it because I am a public official then I am not supposed to be entitled to private life?

They just mentioned it to me as a joke and I took it as nothing really serious. This is something that happened between two adults.

I have commenced investigations to find out why it is circulating, but from all indications, it is a blackmail.

      Sir, you being with a girl has everything to do with your public life because in your public life you instituted sharia, which prohibits prostitution. In the video you were engaged in prostitution. You are guilty of imposing standards even you could not keep. It is gist for everyone. Stop whinning and take it like a man.

    After his robust reply i believe that all Nigerian politicians will use this answer.
    He does not give a damn.
    His wife was a member of the house & a politician too.
    I respect the fact that he did not lie & did not give in to blackmail.
    As for the 10 naira ladies filming him, I have a question for them? Did he not pay you?
    Ya ci be biya bane?

      I swear I was going to say he is right. All three are consenting adults and the only person whose problem it is is his wife who he is cheating on. Then I remembered that this is the same self-righteous Sharia law hypocrite who wants to enforce his believes on others through violence, while he hides in his closet of shame. I say cut off all three legs.

      I think that’s his strategy. Alailojuti. Sharia my foot. Bloody islamic heathen.
      He should be judged according to his sharia.

    You have to admit he has a point. Public officials are not exactly held to a high moral standard in Nigeria. The people he is representing don’t see anything wrong with what he is doing and he is a Muslim so he can vex and marry the girls. Abeg leave Senator make he chop country.

      I disagree oh! Do u knw how many people who lost limbs in the name of sharia??? He should have been practicing what he was preaching and besides when you are a public figure there are certain moral standards that should be up held.

    No, senator Alhaji……It is not okay. And since there is an undeniable evidence of you committing adultery, you should be made to face the Sharia law given that you are a Muslim and a proponent of the Sharia law. There is no room for hypocrisy. Your private life, my foot!

    Mz SA, the hypocrisy of these men stinks to high heaven. Worse still, they don’t even want to educate their populace. That way, someone will look them in the eye one day and call them to order.
    Sharia law my foot. Law for the masses and underprivileged
