There have been some interesting revelations about the confrontation that occurred at Aso Rock Villa a few days ago.
GhGossip made a report about how the first lady, Aisha Buhari’s ADC was detained by the police after a confrontation between Aisha Buhari and President Buhari’s Special Assistant, Sabiu Yusuf.
Sabiu had returned to his residence after he had gone to meet his wife who had just delivered a new baby and per a report by THISDAY, the First Lady Aisha Buhari and three of her children, Zahra, Halima and Yusuf stormed Sabiu’s resident.
They were accompanied by some of her security allies that included Aisha Buhari’s Aide-de-Camp.
The group upon their arrival at Sabiu’s residence demanded that he goes into self-isolation for 14 days so as to not infect the first family with the deadly Coronavirus.
This didn’t go down well with Sabiu and then a heated argument ensued as he wondered why he was being asked to self-isolate himself.
After the incident, Sabiu reportedly went to his villa, however, the first lady together with her children stormed the villa and started raining abuses.
Sabiu, according to sources escaped after several gunshots were fired by the First Lady’s ADC who attempted to arrest the President’s aide.
He reportedly went to hide at the residence of President Buhari’s cousin, Mamman Daura.
Upon hearing the development, the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu ordered the arrest of the Aide-de-camp to the first lady and every security aide who went to Sabiu’s residence.
In a related development, the first lady, Aisha Buhari in a tweet on Friday night asked the IGP to release her aides. In her tweet, she wrote;
“That Covid-19 is real and still very much around in our nation is not in doubt. Consequently, I call on all relevant Government Agencies to enforce the Quarantine Act signed by Mr. President and ensure no one is found violating this law and the NCDC guidelines especially on interstate travel without the necessary exemptions for movement of essentials. Anyone who does that should at the very least be made to undergo a 14 days mandatory isolation no matter who the person is, no one should be above the law and the Police command will do well to remember that.
“Finally, I call on the IGP to release my assigned Staff who are still in the custody of the Police in order to avoid putting their lives in danger or exposure to Covid-19 while in their custody.”
However, sources revealed how astonished they are that the first lady is asking Sabiu to self isolate himself while her two daughters, Zahra and Halima said to have visited their in-laws when Halima’s husband’s uncle died recently.
Upon their arrival, the first lady never asked them to self-isolate themselves.
