The family of Alhaji Yahaya Sabo, a former chairman of the defunct National Party of Nigeria in Plateau State, has accused Senator Abdullahi Adamu, the immediate past National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, of illegally seizing control of their home for more than 25 years without paying the family any compensation.

The Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria claimed to have received a donation from the Nasarawa State government for its current facility in Lafia, the state capital.

Mohammed Sabo, the family’s first son, disclosed this information to journalists on Sunday in Lafia.

He claimed that Abdullahi Adamu, the state’s first civilian governor, unlawfully seized control of their late father’s property, which had served as a temporary PDP office before his taking office in 1999.

He said that since the family’s father, who had a strong relationship with Adamu, had passed away, all attempts to retrieve the property made since Adamu had sold it to the state government when he was governor had failed.

“Our late father was begged by the previous governor, Abdullahi Adamu, to give the state chapter of the PDP the property to serve as their temporary office, and he happily consented since Adamu was extremely close to him, claimed the man.

After our father passed away, we pleaded with Abdullahi Adamu to give us his property, but he has not given any sign of being committed to our family.

“We want everyone to know what has been going on. We shall be forced to close up the location that serves as the FRCN North Central Zonal Office in Lafia if we do not get our property back as soon as feasible.

In the interest of justice and peace, Mohammed Sabo consequently made a plea to the State Governor, Abdullahi Sule, and other well-meaning residents of the state to persuade the former APC National Chairman to transfer their late father’s property to them.

When this report was filed, calls made to Senator Abdullahi Adamu’s phone number had yet to be answered, making attempts to gain his comment fruitless.
