The leaders however accused a member of the House of Representatives, representing Kaura Namoda/Birnin Magaji constituency, Alhaji Sani Jaji of the plot, whom they said aligned himself with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Zamfara state.

The recalled propaganda according to them was orchestrated to create tension and political instability in the state when he understood that Senator Sahabi Ya’u was a calm, honest and focused politician who could not go so low to to fight him in public.

”All the accusations level against Sen. Yau are unfounded, propaganda, mischief and lies aimed to tarnish his image and the legislative duty he is doing for the good people of Zamfara North senatorial district.

Sahabi Yau has displayed the best of character, discipline and good leadership styles in his zone including concern and care for the issue of developmental projects, peace and political cohesion of the people of Zamfara North senatorial zone.
