According to a statement by the Chief Press Secretary for the governor, Habib Haruna, the incident was not a kidnap attempt as was previously thought but a clash between the soldiers and the governor’s mother’s security.

“We would like to put on record that the disturbance was not a kidnap attempt on the Governor’s mother as nothing untoward happened to her,” Mr. Haruna said.

“What really transpired was that a man parked his vehicle in front of the residence of the Governor’s mother and the security detail attached to the building asked him not to park there so as not to block the entrance. The man who claimed to be a military personnel was not in uniform as at the time of the unfortunate incident but he insisted on parking in front of the building on the ground that he was a military personnel.

“He then went on to invite military personnel attached to Operation MESA to beat Mrs. Ambode’s police details after he was advised not to park his vehicle outside the building. At the moment, officials of the State Government are taking appropriate steps to sanction the unruly military personnel who joined their colleague to disturb public peace.”
