Following the clash between First Lady Aisha Buhari and his Private Secretary, Sabiu Yusuf, President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered the restructuring of security at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
It was gathered that the clash at Aso Rock irked President Muhammadu Buhari and other security heads.
“The president has ordered a major security shake-up within the villa. This is immediate and will affect a number of personnel.
“Signal has been sent to the hierarchy of affected agencies, so there will be noticeable changes in the next few days”, a source told Daily Post.
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.
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 allegedly 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.
Aisha Buhari’s aide have since denied reports that the shots were fired by the First Lady’s ADC.
