Aliyu Abdullahi, the spokesperson of the First Lady, Aisha Buhari, has said he could not predict her feelings on the crisis rocking the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Speaking on Channels TV on Sunday, President Muhammadu Buhari’s wife spokesperson said activities of the First Lady have been informed by her love for Nigeria.
Abdullahi Revealed that Aisha Buhari had also taken a leave from speaking freely about public issues because she was being misconstrued.
According to the spokesperson, the First Lady’s aides involved in a recent Aso Rock clash were still in police custody.
He said: “The Presidency has ordered full investigation into the matter. The aides of the First Lady, to the best of my knowledge, are still in police custody.
“The First Lady means well and she always speaks out. She has stopped speaking out recently because she is misconstrued.”
On the issue of the shooting, he said: “I don’t know her feelings over the happenings”.
The issue started when Aisha, members of her immediate family and her Aide-de-camp, Usman Shugaba tried to force Yusuf into self-isolation after he returned from Lagos state, where his wife had a baby.
According to Thisday newspaper, trouble started when the First Lady, Zahra, Halima and Yusuf, accompanied by some of her security aides led by the Aide-de-Camp, went to the residence of Sabiu, who is the President’s nephew, demanding that he (Sabiu) self-isolate for 14 days, so as not to endanger the first family.
It was gathered that Sabiu escaped after gunshots were fired by the First Lady’s ADC in an attempt to apprehend the President’s aide.
He, however, ran into a nearby house of President Buhari’s cousin, Mamman Daura, where he reportedly spent the night.
The incident was reported to the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, who then ordered the arrest of the Aide-de-camp to the First Lady and all the security aides that accompanied her to Sabiu’s residence.
