Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) caretaker committee chairman, Senator Ahmed Mohammed Makarfi has alleged that some leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) are behind the rumoured death of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Makarfi told newsmen in Kaduna that APC leaders who were interested in contesting certain positions in 2019 were behind the rumour.
"The All Progressive Congress (APC) should point its search light inward and investigate itself as to the source of the rumour. PDP, I said have nothing to gain from anything.
"Those who are peddling the rumour know themselves and they are in APC. Some of them are already positioning themselves for power in 2019. APC should investigate itself", he stated. The former governor of Kaduna State also advised the people of Southern Kaduna against politicizing the crisis in the area.
He described the crisis in Southern Kaduna as unfortunate, and cautioned government and the people of the area not to politicize the matter.
"It is a serious criminal issue and, of course there may be matters that have to do with other things that may not be seen as criminality.
"I am not in a position to say much because I don't have all the facts. But, we must not politicize the matter"
"Even those outside the state must never politicize this crisis, because if we attempt to politicize it, then the crisis will spread beyond Kaduna and that would be a disaster," he said.
