The State Security Service has announced the transfer to the police of the orderly attached to Aisha Buhari ,Sani Baba-Inna to the Nigerian police custody.
Naija News learnt that the spokesperson for the SSS, Peter Afunanya, who made this known in a statement earlier today said
President @MBuhari, by now, must have learnt that Nigerians are not buying the lame denial by our First Lady, who had rushed to town to disown her detained security aide, Sani Baba Inna, just because the lid is off the can of worms. pic.twitter.com/GwrEERcOX9

“He has been handed over to the police for further administrative action,” “Investigation, however, disclosed that he was never, at any given time or circumstance, directly or indirectly, instructed, by the First Lady, to act or collect, in her name, money or material gifts from any person(s) or group(s),” it said.
It would be recalled that Sani Baba-Inna, a chief superintendent of police, served as aide de camp to the First Lady until he was arrested in September for allegedly using his office and Mrs Buhari’s name for influence peddling to the tune of N2.5 billion.
The SSS said Mr Baba-Ina would now be disciplined by the police, after forwarding the outcome of its investigation into the alleged fraud. Mr Afunanya did not categorically say whether or not the investigation uncovered suspected illicit funds with Mr Baba-Ina, or the precise amount.
