Suleiman Adamu, the caretaker chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Yola South local government of Adamawa State, has been suspended after he was caught in leaked audio wishing the death of President Muhammadu Buhari.
KanyiDaily had earlier reported how Adamu was heard in a leaked audio wishing President Buhari died of coronavirus so that his deputy, Yemi Osinbajo, would take over the reins of power in Nigeria.

Reacting to the audio clip, APC said a seven-man disciplinary committee has been set up by the State Working Committee (SWC) to investigate the issues in the audio clip and make appropriate recommendations for action.
A statement signed by the Publicity Secretary of the party in Adamawa, Mohammed Abdullahi, said the party has resolved to suspend Adamu pending the outcome of the investigation by the seven-man disciplinary committee.
“As a Party we came across an audio clip that is widely circulating in the social media which emanates from the Stakeholders meeting of our Party in Yola South Local Government,” the statement reads.
