Man, 55, Claims Biological Relation with Atiku, Suggests DNA Test for Verification

Ahmadu Abubakar, a 55-year-old man has sworn that he is a biological younger brother to Atiku Abubakar, former vice president and presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the 2023 elections. In the event that the latter doubts him, Ahamdu suggested a deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) test.

The man in a video interview, claimed his efforts to unite with the political icon have been fruitless in the last 30 years.

He explained that their father Abubakar was a businessman and an Islamic teacher originally from Bodinga village of Wurno, Sokoto State but migrated to Adamawa where he married Atiku’s mother Kande, as Abubakar would call her.

Ahmadu stated that their father left Adamawa after being pressed to enrol Atiku on formal school, a decision he strongly dissented from and which led him to finally relinquished Atiku to his mother in Adamawa and left for Bauchi State where he married his (Ahmadu) mother.

“He did not like formal education, and they insisted, even warning him not to take Atiku out of school again,” Ahmadu explained. “He then left to Cameroun and back to Bauchi where he married our mother and left to Plateau days after, and Atiku was schooling then.”

After the marriage, Abubakar moved to stay in Plateau State where he entrusted his children to one of his neighbours who also died before uniting them with other relatives, Atiku in particular.

The 55 years old man insisted that his goal to meet Atiku Abubakar was for kinship ties, calling on the former vice president to take their blood sample to a DNA test for confirmation if he doubts the claim.

Ahmadu noted that his elder brother Mallam Mohammadu (now late), Hawwa and himself tried to see Atiku even a decade ago but it was not successful. 

“We called him when we reached Yola, and he sent a bus to take us, but when we met him, we could not talk and that was how we were stranded that day. I want our children to know one another”.

“Again, I once went to Abuja but security agents denied me access. We also went there with eight of my children and they still warned that if the children insisted, they (security) will deal with them”.

Efforts to reach Atiku were fruitless as WikkiTimes tried to get his comment via Twitter.
