According to reports, President Muhammadu Buhari allegedly ordered Nigerian security agents to arrest his wife’s younger brother for allegedly scamming an unnamed businessman.
A close confidant of the president told SaharaReporters that the suspect named Musa Yola was the immediate younger brother of Mrs Buhari.
The source said the suspect named 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.
President Buhari personally ordered last Monday night that Alhaji Yola be produced before him in handcuffs in the company of the businessman he duped.
According to SR, after telling the businessman that he was stupid to part with such significant cash when he should know that he, Mr. Buhari, would not participate in fraud, the president ordered agents of the State Security Services (SSS) attached to Aso Rock Villa to thoroughly investigate the scam. He also ordered the SSS operatives to ensure that the businessman recovered his money from his brother-in-law.
A close SSS to the site said Yola has refunded the money to the affected businessman, and he has been released on bail.
