The former Special Adviser to  the  Imo State Governor Hope Uzodimma on Northern Affairs, and Founder Arewa United for Peace Foundation, Ambassador Hassan Adamu has debunked  allegations by those he called dissident members of the Foundation, among other things that he used the Foundation’s name to secure a grant of five thousand  Dollars from the  United Arab Emirate.

Addressing  a Press conference in Owerri, Ambassador Adamu described the allegations as false, baseless and  targeted at maligning him.

Ambassador Adamu explained that  he rather  paid a solidarity visit to the Sarkin Hausawa of Imo State, Alh. Auwal Suleiman in the exercise of his fundamental human right to freedom of association, a development some erring members of the Foundation frowned at and decided to paint him black before the public.

He therefore issued a 48hour ultimatum to  all those concerned, to come up with  evidence  backing the story published by  some print and electronic media outfits  or face legal action.

The National Coordinator, International Human Rights Commission,  Special Monitoring Mission in Nigeria, Mr Elijah Vitus Echendu, who was in company with the Head, Media & Strategy Communications, IHRC in Nigeria, Fidelis Onakpoma, had earlier confirmed that Ambassador Adamu had petitioned the Commission on the issue of character assassination and promised to assist him clear his name.
