Police Confirms Arrest of LP Gov Candidate in Plateau

 Confirming his arrest in a statement on Saturday, the Spokesman for the state police command , Alabo Alfred, said “Contrary to the report being circulated by  some online news media alleging that the arrest of Amb. Yohanna Margif by operatives of the Plateau State Command is politically motivated, the command wishes to inform members of the public that such report is malicious, misleading and unfounded.
