Aisha Buhari’s sister in 419 scandal

The suspect

The suspect accused of parading herself as having powerful influence in the presidency to dupe unsuspecting victims, including owner of Chikason Group, Dr Alexander Chika Okafor, has incriminated sister of the first lady Aisha Buhari, Mariatu, and disgraced former Secretary to the Federal Government, Babachir Lawal.

“They should ask the First Lady’s sisters, Mariatu is involved, Babachir Lawal knows about this; all the directors have been collecting bribes

“I can never be a fraudster, I only deal in selling real estate that the Federal Government was disposing. SSS has been keeping me in this office for four months,” the suspect told newsmen at the DSS headquarters.

Giving an insight into the suspect alleged vile activities, DSS spokesman, Mr. Peter Nnochirionye Afunanya stated that investigation is ongoing  towards unraveling how the light complexioned middle-aged lady variously known as Amina Mohammed, Justina Oluoha and Amina Villa managed to beat the meticulous security protocols at the presidential villa and engage in her ‘business’ over an undetermined period.

Afunanya said, “The woman who will soon be paraded before you used false aliases, false identities to defraud unsuspecting members before she was discovered; Amina Mohammed, also known as Justina Oluoha, Amina Villa, had, on 22nd of November 2017, paraded herself as the First Lady of Kogi State.

“She used the false identity to evade protocol and scrutiny, thus gaining unauthorized access into the villa and particularly the residence of the First Lady and wife of the President, Hajia Aisha Buhari; she took advantage of the fact that personalities such as  First Ladies, ministers and certain categories of officials are not taken through rigorous protocol and security checks at the villa (security) post.

“What will  even surprise you is that Amina whose phone number is registered with the name Amina Villa had, on the said date, invited one Dr Alexander Chika Okafor also known as Chikason, into the villa wherein she made him to believe that the invitation was at the instance of the First Lady; investigation has revealed that the First Lady was away on lesser hajj and not in the villa during the period.

“Dr Okafor had complained that he was fleeced of over N150 million with respect of a Federal Court of Appeal property in Lagos which Amina had promised to help him buy through the First Lady; the property was said to have been one of those under the Presidential Implementation Committee On Lease Of Federal Government Properties.

“Investigation has shown that this unholy enterprise is not to the knowledge of the First Lady; what Amina simply did was to use the First Lady’s name and office as base to lure  and defraud her victims.

“Members of the public are therefore advised to be wary of individuals or groups who drop names and offices of high government officials to defraud them.”
