Buhari’s daughter, Zahra denies fleecing Nigeria of N51billion

Zahra Idimi, President Muhammadu Buhari’s daughter, has denied fraud allegation against her. An online outlet had reported that the president’s daughter received N51billion and N2.5billion from Nasiru Danu, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, (APC).

She however denied the report titled, ‘How APC Chieftain, Danu, Custom Boss Defrauded Nigerian Government of N51bn, Wired N2.5bn To Buhari’s Daughter’.

In a protest letter by her lawyer Nasiru Aliyu (SAN), Zahra said the report was an “injurious defamation” in a story published on March 5, 2021 titled,

Zahra said “no any foundation owned by her was transferred or credited with such money”.

“Contrary to the said allegations in your (Sahara Reporters’) publications under the reference, our client’s position is that, while she is truly the daughter of President Muhammadu Buhari, she has never perpetrated any fraud nor involved in any fraudulent activity.

“Our client categorically states that she did not defraud the Federal Republic of Nigeria N51 Billion or N2.5 Billion or any sum of money at all in any way.

“Our client is a law-abiding citizen and fulltime housewife supported by her husband.”

Describing the Sahara Reporter’s publication as false and injurious, Zahra demanded that Sahara Reporters retract the publication, and tender a public apology in three national dailies within seven days of receipt of the letter or she will “seek all remedies available in law,” she stated in the letter.
