Aisha Buhari’s ADC In SSS Custody Over Alleged N2.5 billion Fraud
Wife of the President, Mrs. Aisha Muhammadu Buhari has ordered the arrest of her Aide De Camp (ADC), Sani Baba-Inna over allegation of N2.5 billion fraud.
Aisha Buhari had alleged that Baba-Inna received huge donations from politicians and business people on her behalf and kept the cash to himself.
The ADC, who is a Chief Superintendent of Police, is presently in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS).
Spokesperson of DSS, Peter Afunanya confirmed that Baba-Inna is in their custody, saying “He was handed over by the Police and investigation is ongoing.”
The ADC had earlier been investigation by the Police and his house raided.
“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,” a source said.
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.
An associate of Mr. Baba-Inna said the police contacted those named as donors of the controversial funds but that they all denied making the donations attributed to them.
“For instance, one of those named was the Inspector General 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”.
