Drama As Aisha Buhari Orders Arrest Of ADC Over N2.5 billion Fraud

Aisha Buhari

Aisha Buhari, wife of President Muhammadu Buhari has reportedly ordered the arrest of her ADC Sani Baba-Inna for defrauding her to the tune of N2.5 billion.

It was gathered that ADC Sani Baba-Inna, who is a former Superintendent of police received huge donations to the tune of N2.5 billion from politicians and business people on her behalf, and then kept the cash to himself.

ADC Sani Baba-Inna was arrested last Friday September 21st and has remained in detention ever since, with relatives having no access to him, as the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris has been instructed to compel Baba-Inna to refund the money.

Confirming his arrest, 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.

According to Premium Times sources, it is unclear how Aisha Buhari came about the allegation, but it was alleged that another aide working for the President’s wife originated the claim.

“The IG said the matter must be investigated immediately and the house of the ADC was raided,” a source 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.”

It was further gathered that those named as donors of the controversial funds, have all denied making the donations attributed to them. With the outcome of the investigation, it was concluded that Aisha 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 the spokesperson for the SSS, Peter Afunanya and that of the Nigerian Police Force NPF, Jimoh Ibrahim were contacted, both denied knowledge of the case. However spokesperson of the wife of the president, Suleiman Haruna, who revealed that he heard about the matter, added that he was trying to get details from Mrs Buhari, who is currently in New York with her husband for the 73rd UN General Assembly

BREAKING: Supreme Court Rejects Zamfara APC’s Request For Judgment’s Review

Published

on

The Supreme Court has dismissed the application by the Abdulaziz Yari faction of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for a review of its May 24, 2019 judgment in the intra-party dispute in the Zamfara APC.

In a majority ruling on Friday, four members of a five-member panel, led by the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Ibrahim Muhammad, dismissed the application on the grounds that it was without merit.

Justice Inyang Okoro, in the lead judgment, held that the ruling was a gross abuse of the process of the court.

Justice Okoro proceeded to award cost of N2million against the applicant.

In a dissenting judgment, Justice Centus Nweze held that the court ought to have reviewed the judgment by setting aside the consequential order which made the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) the ultimate beneficiary of the intra-party crisis in the Zamfara APC.

Justice Nweze noted that the Supreme Court has reviewed its decision before and should be bold enough to admit where there are errors that ought to be rectified.

He dismissed the objection raised by the respondents, upheld the application and granted the prayers sought.
