Extortion: DSS hands over Aisha Buhari’s ADC to police

The Department of State Services (DSS) yesterday said it had handed over CSP Sani Mohammed Baba-Inna, Aidede- Camp (ADC) to First Lady, Hajiya Aisha Buhari, to the Nigeria Police for disciplinary action.
Baba-Inna was held over allegations of using Buhari’s name to extort unsuspecting members of the public. The ADC had been undergoing interrogation since September 22, when the Police handed him over to the secret service, for the purpose.
The disclosure was made in a statement by the Services’ Public Relations Officer, Mr. Peter Afunanya.
“The Department of State Services wishes to inform the public that it has released Sani Mohammed Baba-Inna (CSP), ADC to the First Lady and Wife of the President, Hajiya Aisha Buhari.
“He has been handed over to the Police for further administrative action,” Afunanya said.
He recalled that Baba-Inna was, on September 22, 2018, handed to the Service by the Police authorities for detailed investigations.
“He had been accused of defamation of character and unduly using his office and that of the First Lady to fraudulently extort and obtain money from sources. “He was alleged to have carried out the illegal and other unethical activities in the name of the First Lady on whose behalf he falsely claimed to have acted. “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). “In line with standard procedures expected in handling a matter of this nature, Baba-Inna is returned to the Police for appropriate regimental action. Accordingly, the details of the investigation report have also been forwarded to the relevant authorities,” Afunanya noted.
