I came to Nigeria and I met the lady who said she was going to a wedding. I did not know her from Adam but I offered to take her there and gave her N500 to drink water.
Later, we met at a joint and we drank and that is all that happened. I did not take her to anywhere and I don’t know why she decided to frame me up,” he said.
