Kadev Kenneth Kelvin, a doctor who was detained on suspicion of cyberstalking, has apologised in front of the public.
Tuesday saw Kadev being remanded at the Federal Correctional Complex in Makurdi by a Benue State Magistrate Court.
According to reports, the accused published a Facebook post on March 12, 2023, where he claimed to have patched the lacerated anus of Bemgba Iortyom, the Peoples Democratic Party’s publicity secretary for Benue State, after the latter was allegedly sodomised in an Abuja prison in 2017.
In the Facebook post that followed the incident, Dr. Kadev asserted that he had never seen the complainant in person and had never had any surgical procedures done on him.
“PUBLIC APOLOGY Earlier today, I had an altercations with Mr. Bemgba Iortyom, who have been writing malicious posts on the person of my principal and spiritual guardian, Rev. Fr. Hyacinth Alia PhD. We exchanged words and insults,” he wrote.
“I have received many calls from friends and associates that I went overboard. I want to make it public and categorically clear that my words were mere insults and lack substance. Remember, when two people insult each other, they say things that they don’t really mean. Insults are not meant to please anyone.
“I have never seen Mr. Bemgba Iortyom in life except on this medium, and never perform any surgery on him. I regret my actions for condescending to exchange such words and ask that you all look beyond this lapses on my part. It is not in my character.
“For Mr. Iortyom, I have equally forgiven him and all he said, and I call on him to do same. We are humans and not above mistakes. Thank you all. Kadev Kenneth Kevin.”
