ENUGU—THE Civil Liberties Organisation, CLO, has demanded an update on the arrest of the Aide de Camp of the wife of the President, Mrs. Aisha Buhari over N2.5 billion bribery allegation.
The First Lady’s ADC, Sani Baban-Inna, a Chief Superintendent of Police, was arrested over an allegation of receiving bribes amounting to N2.5 billion from various people allegedly seeking for undisclosed favors from the First Lady.
In a letter to the Department of Security Services, DSS, where the ADC is allegedly being detained, the CLO demanded that Baban-Inna’s case file be revisited.
The group said it was agitated that since the arrest and detention of the ADC in September, nothing had come out of the case.
The letter by by the group’s programme Coordinator, Kindness Jonah and the Public Relations Officer, Eastern zonal headquarters, Onyema Odiegwu said: “We as human rights purveyors have every reason to believe that such a governmental body like DSS would not stand a case on its head by arresting somebody without reason, and illegally detain same, without due prosecution.
“It is, therefore, a fait accompli that we were duly informed that DSS carried out a commensurate investigation into the accounts of CSP Sani Baban-Inna but to the body’s chagrin, it was discovered that there was only a pittance of N30,000 left in his account.
“Again, we were made to understand that his boss, Mrs. Aisha Buhari, has officially denied having a hand in his ordeal with DSS, stating that she never knew of any such supposed extortions by Baba-Inna either on her behalf or by the exclusive scheming of Baban-Inna himself, describing the whole scenario as bizarre.“
