Aisha Buhari accuses ADC of defrauding her of N2.5B
The president’s wife is alleging that Sani Baba-Inna, a chief superintendent of police, received huge donations from politicians and business people on her behalf and then kept the cash to himself.
Mrs Buhari therefore requested the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, to arrest and compel Mr. Baba-Inna to refund the money, put at over N2.5billion.
The police officer was arrested on Friday and has remained in detention ever since, with relatives having no access to him, family members say.
It is unclear how the president’s wife came about the allegation, but one source said another aide working for Mrs Buhari originated the claim.
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.
Immediately the police received the petition from Mrs Buhari, the ADC was arrested and investigation launched.
“The IG said the matter must be investigated immediately and the house of the ADC was raided,” one of our sources 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.”
The police, it was gathered, concluded that Mrs 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.
