A video purportedly showing the Deputy Speaker of Nasarawa State House of Assembly, Godiya Akwashiki, naked has gone viral on social media.
It is reported that Akwashiki, who represents Nasarawa Eggon west in the state assembly, was allegedly caught in the act of trying to sleep with the wife of former National Judicial Council (NJC) secretary Danladi Envuluanza.
Akwashiki was recently elected senator to represent Nasarawa North Senatorial District.
In the viral video, the lawmaker is heard begging for water to drink while another voice, which many believe to be that of Envulanza, is heard in the background.
Concise News understands that Akwashiki had already accepted his misdoing and attributed it to the devil in his confessional statement to the police at the Maitama police station.
It is believed that the lawmaker got Mrs Envulanza’s number during the pre-electioneering campaign. The woman intends to persuade her husband to support Akwashiki’s senatorial ambition.
A source, who does not want to be named, told Premium Times: “After the election, he has been calling her more often, like three to four times daily. With the way events have taken a different dimension and the fact that he has shown interest on Danladi’s wife, she warned him on two occasions.”
He said despite the warning, the lawmaker still persisted in making sexual advances towards her.
He stated that on the day Akwashiki would be disgraced, the lawmaker contacted Envulanza’s security to ask him where his boss was at that time. The security told him his boss had travelled to Jos.
“Not satisfied with the answer, he called Danladi’s driver to also ask about the whereabouts of his boss and of course, the driver told him that Danladi had travelled to Jos,” the source said.
“It looked like a perfect time for the devil to book an appointment with Danladi’s wife.”
“He phoned her and made arrangements for her to meet him at exclusive stores supermarket where he will buy the drinks they will drink at the hotel he was taking her to.”
The source said unknown to the lawmaker, Envulanza did not travel to Jos and was aware of the plan and had been monitoring the situation.
“It was after he picked her up and was taking her to a hotel that he was caught and beaten by some furious youths. He was then handed over to the police,” the source added.
“At Maitama police station, Godiya Akwashiki confessed to have committed the crime of wanting to sleep with Danladi’s wife and that he was taking her to a hotel.
“There are glaring evidence that affirms this truthful account. Notably amongst them are the recorded conversations between Godiya Akwashiki and Danladi’s wife and his written confessional statement given to personnel of the Nigeria Police Force, Maitama police station.”
The source further said the lawmaker’s confessional statement was given in front of some notable national executives of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He debunked the rumour that the lawmaker was caught in Danladi Envuluanza’s house.
“I wish to make some clarification on the sex scandal. Godiya Akwashiki was not caught at Danladi’s residence; Danladi has not in anyway framed Godiya because he has nothing to benefit from it,” the source emphasized.
In the meantime, the lawmaker’s camp has denied the report that he was soliciting for sex from the Danladi Envuluanza’s wife.
They claimed he was stripped naked at gunpoint and set up in a bid to embarrass him.
The FCT police spokesman, Anjuguri Manzah, said investigation is still ongoing.
“There is nothing I can say, for now, the investigation is still ongoing,” Manzah stressed.
