The Deputy Speaker, Nasarawa State House of Assembly and senator-elect for Nasarawa North Senatorial District, Godiya Akwashiki, was reported to be beaten into the state of a coma over an affair with the wife of a top politician in the state.
The said politician, Danladi Envuluanza was a governorship aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Nasarawa but lost to Abdullahi Sule in the primary election.
It was reported that Envuluanza allegedly mobilised thugs who met Akwashiki in one of the hotels in the outskirts of Abuja where he was publicly beaten and stripped for attempting to sleep with his wife.
Though Envuluanza’s wife was not seen around the hotel, the politician who openly supervised Akwashiki’s beating in the hotel asked the thugs to kill him if they could.
However, Akwashiki said he had never met Envuluanza’s wife in his life and wondered how he would attempt to sleep with someone he had never met before.
He said that the incident was a set up by the politician to embarrass him having failed in his bid to stop his election to the Senate.
The state Governor, Umaru Tanko Al-Makura, was alleged to have called the Inspector General of Police who is from the state to order his release.
