Presidency: Buhari was never in danger of shots fired as First Lady and President’s influential aide bicker over refusal to isolate after a trip

The Nigerian Presidency on Sunday confirmed the altercations at the Presidential Villa, Abuja between First Lady, Aisha Buhari, her children and security aides against Presidenti Muhammadu Buhari’s influential Personal Assistant aide and favourite nephew, Sabiu “Tunde” Yusus,

But The Presidency said that President Buhari was never in danger either from the shooting that took place or from the deadly Coronavirus (COVID-29).

On Saturday, Global Upfront Newspapers (GUN) had reported that the power altaercation reached a climax on Thursday night when First Lady, her children and security aides went to forcefully confront Tunde following an earlier heated disagreement over his refusal to self-isolate after his trip to Lagos to see his wife, who had just given birth to a boy.

At the House 8 Guest Chalet of the President where Tunde resides with his family, there was an altercation between him and Mrs. Buhari, her children and her security aides that eventually snowballed into a near fatal brawl, with shots fired and the President’s Personal Assistant escaping to avoid bodily harm.

On Friday morning, Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Mohammed Adamu, arrived the Presidential Villa and ordered Mrs. Buhari’s ADC and all the police personnel attached to her who took part in the altercation and shooting arrested and detained.

Meanwhile, on Friday, in series of Tweets, First Lady Aisha urged the Inspector General of Police, to free her Aide-De-Camp and other police aides taken into custody on the orders of the police chief.

The First Lady said in multiple tweets via her verified twitter handle @aishambuhari: “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 under go 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.”

Presidential Spokesperson, Malam Garba Shehu said via his Twitter handle that “The Presidency wishes to acknowledge concerns expressed by several members of the public regarding the recent incident among the occupants of the State House which escalation led to the arrest of some staff by the police.

“This is to assure everyone that the President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, @MBuhari, is not, and was not at anytime in any form of danger arising, either from deadly infections or the reported incident by security personnel which is currently under investigation.

“This particular incident happened outside the main residence of the President.”
