In the video released by Saharareporters ,Bukar who was seen in an uncompromising posture was videoed by one of the ladies.
His wife is the current Minister of State for Foreign Affairs.
The Senator did not deny the allegation but was wondering how his private affair could have been anyone's business.
“This is a personal, private matter. What does my having been with a girl have to do with the public?
“You know the normal thing: people ask for unreasonable things, and if you deny them, they try to blackmail you if they have a way.
“If they say I raped, that’s a different matter altogether. Is it because I am a public official then I am not supposed to be entitled to private life?
“I have commenced investigations to find out why it is circulating. But from all indications, it is a blackmail.”
