Former Yobe governor, Bukar Ibrahim, caught on tape with two women in hotel room

Former Yobe State Governor Senator Bukar Ibrahim

Former Yobe State Governor and serving Senator, Bukar Ibrahim, has been caught on tape in a hotel room with two women.

In the clip posted on YouTube by Sahara Reporter, Ibrahim, currently representing Yobe East at the Senate, is seen dressing up presumably after a threesome.

While one of the women recorded the politician with a mobile phone, the other strolled about wearing a dashiki.

Only the husband of three was unclad in the video.

The 66-year-old who introduced Sharia law while governor between 1999 and 2007 was however defiant in an interview with Premium Times on Monday.

“This is a personal, private matter. What does my having been with a girl have to do with the public?

“You know the normal thing: people ask for unreasonable things, and if you deny them, they try to blackmail you if they have a way,” Ibrahim, the husband of the incumbent Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Khadijat Buka Abba Ibrahim, said.

Sahara Reporters published the video on the Internet Sunday, and it quickly went viral.

Ibrahim said he couldn’t remember where or when the encounter recorded took place, adding that he owed no one an explanation since he was not accused of any crime.

“If they say I raped, that’s a different matter altogether.

“Is it because I am a public official then I am not supposed to be entitled to private life?”

The senator said he knew when one of the women was filming him but was told it was only for fun and they also wanted to illuminate the room with a camera.

“They just mentioned it to me as a joke and I took it as nothing really serious,” he said. “This is something that happened between two adults.

“I have commenced investigations to find out why it is circulating,” the senator said. “But from all indications, it is a blackmail.”
