The First Lady of Nigeria, Mrs Aisha Muhammadu Buhari has reacted to news making the rounds that her ‘sister’ was arrested by the Department of State Services, DSS.
In a statement issued on Wednesday, Mrs Buhari said she Amina Mohammed, the arrested woman, was never her associate.
“Her Excellency, wife of the President of Nigeria, Mrs. Aisha Muhammadu Buhari, has been following events related to investigation of a fraud suspect by the Department of State Services (DSS), and wishes to dissociate herself from all the individuals involved in the stated fraud case,” the statement said.
“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,” she said.
