N150m Scandal: I Don't Know Amina Mohammed - Aisha Buhari
So much has been said about the case of Amina Mohammed and the N150 million she allegedly collected fraudulently from unsuspecting members of the public in the name of the President’s wife.
But not much has been about the suspect’s possible links with Mrs Aisha Buhari, which may have given her the leverage to, as they claim, commit those crimes in her name.
Mrs Buhari has now cleared the air and made her stance known in a statement dissociating her from the case.
In a statement by her Director of Information, Mr Suleiman Haruna, on Wednesday in Abuja, Mrs Buhari warned her staff not to engage in any fraudulent activities, adding that “anyone found guilty will face the full wrath of the law’’.
“The wife of the President Mrs Aisha Buhari, has been following events related to investigation of a fraud suspect by the Department of State Services (DSS) and wishes to dissociate herself from all the individuals involved in the stated fraud case.
“Mrs Buhari wishes to state that one Mariyatu whose name was mentioned in the case is not her sister and the so-called Amina Mohammed is not and was never her associate.
“Therefore, they are not in a position to transact any business in her name or that of her office,’’ the statement read.
The statement also explained that the wife of the President did not use her office to transact any business.
“Mrs Buhari wishes to inform the general public that whoever does business with anyone in her name will be doing so at his or her own risk.
“As for staff of her office, the wife of the President warned that anyone found to be engaged in fraudulent dealings, will face the full wrath of the law,” Haruna said.
