"I was in Lagos for the NBA conference."
"It used to hold at Eko Hotel and was largely funded by the APC government of Lagos state."
Shettima maintained that when he found out it was a hostile crowd, he had a change of mind and decided to wear the outfit.
He, however, noted that as a trained banker, he knew the outfit was not the right one for the occasion, but he chose it considering the 'location as well as the hostile crowd'.
"Subsequently, they moved it to Eko Atlantic; a product of an idea sanctioned by Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
"One of the candidates, he funded his agents and they held meetings for 3 consecutive nights to cause mischief.
"I was a banker, and I was trained by one of the best bankers in the world, I'm in Jim Ovia's team.
"When I was told that is was a hostile crowd, I delibrately wore sneakers."
