According to Asare, Burgi Naabu suggested they fight the IGP physically and spiritually.

“All that he was trying to say was that this thing, we have to fight it, both physically and spiritually. And then he gave examples of people that he helped them fight for the positions spiritually.”

“Chief Bugri Naabu insisted that he has to also see some Mallams. He recommended about three, some in the North, and some from his village. It was Chief Bugri Naabu himself came forth with that suggestion,” Asare testified.

He, however, maintained that the tape had been doctored, with his objections to the use of Mallams edited out.
