Late Lt Col Sakaba’s widow has debunked Atiku’s claims of putting a call across to her, just after a 6 Division delegation led by Brig. Gen SI Igbinomwanhia COS HQ 6 Division visited her on behalf of the GOC 6 Div/LCC JTF OPDS Maj Gen J Sarham.
A tweet on Atiku’s Twitter page read;
This Christmas, I urge all Nigerians to spare a thought for our military on the frontlines on the war on terror. I had cause to telephone Lt. Col. Ibrahim Sakaba’s widow this Yuletide. I am touched by her devotion & love for her husband who paid the supreme sacrifice for Nigeria.
