Aisha Buhari’s ADC not released family recants


The family of the Aide De Camp (ADC) to the wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, Aisha, has said that he has not been released, contrary to information provided earlier.
Mr. Baba-Inna’s elder brother, Farouq Baba-Inna, told Premium Times yesterday afternoon that he has been released.
“He has just been released and I am on my way to see him,” he said.
However, Farouq later told us that he was misinformed.
“A colleague of the ADC called me as I was travelling to Abuja to tell me that he has been released.
Unfortunately, it turned out to be untrue.
“I was so excited and had no reason to doubt him.
That was why I called to inform you,” he said about an hour after the initial call.
Spokesperson to Mrs. Buhari, Suleiman Haruna, in a message said Baba-Inna may not be released anytime soon.
“The officer is being investigated on allegation of corrupt practices, which is a serious offence.
As such, it is unlikely that the DSS will compromise and release him midway without completing the investigation,” Haruna said.
Buhari accuses Baba-Inna of collecting cash gifts totaling N2.5 billion from politicians and businesses over three years.
He allegedly kept the money to himself.
Mrs Buhari asked the police to retrieve the money, and publicly asked persons who may have given money to Baba-Inna to demand same from him.
However, police investigations, according to sources in the police, failed to trace such huge amount to the ADC.
Dissatisfied, Buhari asked the SSS to take over the case.
Spokesperson of the service, Peter Afunanya, who confirmed the arrest to Premium Times on Tuesday said investigation was in progress
