Sani Baba-Inna, the Aide De Camp (ADC) to the wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, Aisha, has been released by the State Security Service (SSS), after been detained since Friday last week accused for fraud.
The ADC was accused of collecting cash gifts totalling N2.5 billion from politicians and businesses over three years but kept it to himself.
Mrs Buhari asked the police to retrieve the money, and publicly asked persons who may have given money to Mr Baba-Inna to demand same from him.
However, police investigations, according to sources in the police, failed to trace such huge amount to the ADC but dissatisfied, Mrs Buhari reportedly asked the SSS to take over the case.
Spokesperson of the service, Peter Afunanya, who confirmed the arrest said investigation was in progress.
Mr[b] Baba-Inna’s elder brother, Farouq Baba-Inna,said on Thursday afternoon that he has been released.“He has just been released and I am on my way to see him,” he said.[/b]
A call to Mr Afunanya was not answered and is yet to be returned as at press time.
