The first lady of Nigeria, Aisha Buhari is presently alleged to have ordered the arrest of one of hr Aide De Camp for allegedly defrauding her of a total of 2.5 Billion Naira.
The Name of the ADC is Sani Baba-Inna, a chief superintendent of police, he was accused of receiving huge donations from politicians and business people on her behalf and keeping the money to himself.
According to the Premium Times Newspaper, “Mrs. Buhari, therefore, requested the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, to arrest and compel Mr. Baba-Inna to refund the money, put at over N2.5billion.
The police officer was arrested Friday and has remained in detention ever since, with relatives having no access to him, family members say.
It is unclear how the president’s wife came about the allegation, but one source said another aide working for Mrs. Buhari originated the claim.
An associate of the embattled police officer said Mr. Baba-Inna strongly denied the allegation, saying he received no donation from anyone on behalf of his boss.”
After investigations by the necessary authorities, the investigators only found N1,200 cash in the House. His bank account was also investigated and had only a balance of N30,000 while the transaction records showed that most credits to the account were his salaries and allowances.”
The Police, however, concluded that the ADC must have been accused falsely because they also said the result of investigations shows that the alleged politicians that they said gave money to the ADC said they didn’t give any money to him.
“For instance, one of those named was the IG of Police himself,” the source said. “But the IG said he has never passed any money through Baba-Inna.”
When Mrs. Buhari was informed of the outcome of the police investigation, the source said the first lady flared up and accused the police of colluding “to protect one of their own”.
She then reportedly asked the State Security Service (SSS) to take over the case and get her money back”.according to reports by Premium Times.
However, when contacted, the spokesperson for the SSS, Peter Afunanya said, he was not aware of Mr Baba-Inna’s arrest by his agency.
“You are just telling me now, I am not aware, but if there is anything like that I will get back to you,” he said.
In the same vein, the spokesperson of the police, Jimoh Moshood, said “I am not aware.”
But Hassana, the wife of Mr Baba-Inna confirmed her husband’s arrest.
She also said she “has not been able to speak with him since he was taken away”.
When contacted, the spokesperson of the wife of the president, Suleiman Haruna, said although he heard about the matter, he was trying to get details of the matter from Mrs Buhari, who he said is currently traveling in New York.
