Aisha Buhari, wife of President 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.
