Aisha Buhari, wife of Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari, has asked the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, to release her security staff in detention on the orders of her husband’s Personal Assistant, Sabiu ‘Tunde’ Yusuf, to avoid putting their lives in danger as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak.
Aisha Buhari stated this in a series of tweets on Friday. “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.
An earlier report revealed that a top aide to the President, Yusuf Sabiu aka Tunde, who had recently returned from another state, refused to self-isolate but forced his way to the Presidential Villa.
Aisha Buhari’s aides were said to have forcibly removed him from the Villa but Sabiu, who is one of the most powerful aides to the President, allegedly got the CSO to arrest Aisha Buhari’s aides including her ADC, Usman Shugaba.
