Jaafar Jaafar the journalist who exposed the alleged bribe video involving Kano State Governor Abdullahi Ganduje has fled the country with his family to the UK citing threat to his life.
He told Premium Times that he wouldn’t be returning until the ‘coast is clear.’
He said: “I’ll be here until this regime can guarantee my safety and protect freedom of the press.”
Jaafar who went into hiding when the controversial video was released at the time said: “Police are trying to file criminal charges against me for publishing Ganduje videos.
“That I defamed the character of IGP is a bait to arrest, detain and file criminal charges against me.
“I wrote nothing against the former and the current IGP.”
