Wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, Aisha, has accused her own Aide De Camp, Sani Baba-Inna, of defrauding her and has ordered his arrest. According to Premium Times, Baba-Inna, a chief superintendent of police, was accused of receiving huge donations from politicians and business people on her behalf and then kept the cash to himself.
As a result, the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, has been ordered by the wife of Buhari to arrest and compel Mr. Baba-Inna to refund the money, put at over N2.5billion.
However, Premium Times reports that Baba-Inna, who was arrested Friday and has remained in detention ever since, with relatives having no access to him, family members , strongly denied the accusation.
“The IG said the matter must be investigated immediately and the house of the ADC was raided,” one of our sources said. “Shockingly, 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, it was gathered, concluded that Mrs Buhari must have been wrongly informed as there was nothing to show or prove that such huge sums of money was in the custody of Mr Baba-Inna.
“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 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”.
