Contrary to online reports by Sahara Reporters that President Buhari has ordered the arrest of Alhaji Musa Yola, the younger brother to Nigeria’s First Lady, Aisha Buhari, the report is nothing but a publicity stunt to make the President appear tough on corruption a State House correspondent told BREAKING TIMES on condition of anonymity on Monday.
The alleged suspect, named Musa Yola, is said to be the immediate younger brother of Mr. Buhari’s wife. “Please disregard the report. It is a fabrication. Buhari with all his anti-corruption stance does not operate the way they reported the issue. He couldn’t have asked that the alleged scammer be arrested and brought to him in handcuffs in the brazen manner they embellished the report. Buhari allows the security agents to do their job without interference”, our source disclosed.
According to Sahara Reporters, Alhaji Yola “reportedly received N300 million from a businessman after promising to provide his dupe with political access to secure an oil block from the Buhari administration. Mr. Buhari personally ordered last Monday night that Mr. Yola be produced before him in handcuffs in the company of the businessman he duped.”
“This is laughable. Does Alhaji Musa Yola even exist? I doubt the guy they put in that picture is actually him if truly he exists”, another confidential source told BREAKING TIMES.
