Wife of Nigeria’s President Aisha Buhari says she did not order the detention of her Aide De Camp ADC over allegations of fraud.
Sani Baban- Inna, Chief Superintendent of Police is currently in detention over allegations that he defrauded unsuspecting officials and associates of his principal, the First Lady.
But Mrs Buhari has said she has no hand in his arrest and detention.
According to a statement by her media Aide Suleiman Haruna, CSP Sani Baban-Inna who has been ADC to the First Lady since 2016 has used the opportunity to defraud unsuspecting associates and officials as initial investigations have shown.
The statement says the Nigeria Police Force, his employers arrested him to investigate the allegations leveled against him.
Mrs Buhari in the statement said that she has never sent any of her staff to collect any favours on her behalf or on behalf of her children and will never do so.
She advised those who may have been defrauded by Mr. Baban-Inna to get across to him to retrieve whatever he took from them, insisting that she will not condone fraudulent behavior by any of her staff.
She uses this opportunity to call on all those in positions of authority to rise above intimidation by their aides and deal with such attitudes as extortion by name-dropping, especially within the Presidency.
