Wife of the President of Nigeria, Mrs Aisha Muhammadu Buhari, has dissociated herself from alleged fraudsters who were arrested for using her name for unwholesome activities. She has also warned that any of her staff found to be involved in fraudulent activities will face the full weight of the law.
This followed the arrest of one Amina Mohammed, by the Department of State Services (DSS) in connection with fraudulent transactions over which she mentioned some names including Mariyatu who she said is a sister to the wife of the president.
In a statement issued by Suleiman Haruna, Director of Information to Wife of the President, in Abuja on Wednesday, she said she had been following events related to the investigation of the fraud suspect and wished to dissociate herself from all the individuals involved in the stated fraud case.
According to the statement, “she wishes to state categorically that Mariyatu is not her sister and the so-called Amina Mohammed is not and was never her associate and is therefore not in a position to transact any business in her name or that of her office.
“She wishes to further state that she does not run businesses in her office, therefore whoever does business with anyone in her name will be doing so at his/her own risk.
“As for staff of her office, she wishes to state that anyone found to be engaged in fraudulent dealings, will face the full wrath of the law.”
