A nude video of Nasarawa State’s deputy speaker and senator-elect, Godiya Akwashiki (APC, Nasarawa North), being beaten by two men with him begging is currently circulating online.
Akwashiki’s sin, according to report, was that he was caught in a hotel room in Maitama area of Abuja purportedly in an uncompromising position with a top politician’s wife. The lovers were said to have been caught in the act.
In the sixteen seconds clip which went viral at the weekend, the Senator-elect is seen naked and beaten by his attackers. At a point in the clip he is shown sitting in a car wearing a torn singlet. At another point, the Nasarawa Deputy Speaker is seated on a hospital bed with two men by his side.
In the video, the lawmaker is seen hit several times by two people, while he repeatedly said “sorry”.
The spokesman of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Police Command, Anjuguri Manzah, who confirmed the incident, however, debunked claim that Akwashiki was arrested.
