Former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Mr Babacir Lawal, in which the wife of the president, Aisha Buhari, was also mentioned, has denied any involvement in the crime.

The principal suspect, Amina Mohammed was arrested in Abuja by DSS personnel and in her confession, implicated Babacir Lawal, Aisha Buhari and one Maryatu, said to be Mrs Buhari’s sister.

Lawal in a statement on Thursday in Yola, just like Mrs Buhari, a day before denied any form of involvement in the case.

In his words:

“My attention was drawn to a confessional statement made by one Amina Mohammed who was paraded together with several other persons recently by DSS operatives in connection with some alleged criminal offenses.

“In the said confessional statement which has since gone viral in the mass and social media platforms,the said suspect in a desperate effort to shield herself from the consequences of her actions mentioned my name and that of the First Lady, Mrs Aisha Buhari as co-conspirators in the alleged crimes.

“I wish to state very clearly and unequivocally here that I do not know and have never had any dealings whatsoever with the said Amina Mohammed or any of her partners in crime.

“I also do not know one Maryatu said to be a sister to Mrs Buhari or anyone called Chicason whom she also mentioned.

“I have never been interested in property business and have no dealings with sale of Federal Government properties anywhere in Nigeria.”

Lawan further revealed that he has gotten to his lawyer, noting that legal actions will be taken against the suspect, as  the publications on the allegation by the suspect, has caused him and members of his family embarrassment as intended by Amina and her sponsors.
