Margif’s running mate, Jack Dung Bot on Friday, said that he wasn’t ready to speak because he was “too emotional,” and also “trying to put himself together.”

 

 

A family source confirmed Mr Margif’s arrest but could not immediately state the reason for the arrest or which police station he was taken to.

“There is a plan to present a new candidate to represent the party. I heard that he (Mr Margif) was approached to withdraw but he refused. The unknown candidate is also rumoured to be from the APC after he fell off with the party,” he said.

He however said Mr Margif’s arrest could be tied to some fraud allegations levelled against him in the past.
