Aisha Buhari, President Muhammadu Buhari’s wife, has asked the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, to release her aides from detention.
SaharaReporters had disclosed that Sabiu Yusuf, a personal assistant to President Buhari, had gotten the first lady’s aides arrested after they ejected him from the Presidential Villa for not obeying with COVID-19 safety measures.
The President’s PA was reported to have been evicted from the villa after he returned from Lagos to Abuja on Monday and refused all entreaties to go on self-isolation as required.
In a series of posts on her Twitter page on Friday, Aisha Buhari urged Government Agencies to enforce the Quarantine Act signed by President Buhari and ensure no one is found violating this law and the NCDC guidelines, especially on interstate travel.
She also calls on IGP Adamu to release her assigned staff in police custody in order to avoid putting their lives in danger.
Aisha Buhari wrote: “That Covid-19 is real and still very much around in our nation is not in doubt. Consequently, I call on all relevant Government Agencies to enforce the Quarantine Act signed by Mr. President and ensure no one is found violating this law and the NCDC guidelines especially on interstate travel without the necessary exemptions for movement of essentials,” she said.
“Anyone who does that should at the very least be made to undergo a 14 days mandatory isolation no matter who the person is, no one should be above the law and the Police command will do well to remember that.
“Finally, I call on the IGP to release my assigned Staff who are still in the custody of the Police in order to avoid putting their lives in danger or exposure to Covid-19 while in their custody.”
