State Security Service on Wednesday announced transfer to the police of the orderly attached to Mrs Aisha Buhari to the police.
Sani Baba-Inna, a chief superintendent of police, served as aide de camp to the First Lady until he was arrested in September for allegedly using his office and Mrs Buhari’s name for influence peddling to the tune of N2.5 billion.
“He has been handed over to the police for further administrative action,” Mr Peter Afunanya, a spokesperson for SSS, said in a statement.
SSS absolved Mrs Buhari from her aide’s alleged fraudulent activities.
“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),” it said.
SSS said Baba-Ina would now be disciplined by the police, after forwarding outcome of its investigation into the alleged fraud.
Afunanya did not categorically say whether or not the investigation uncovered suspected illicit funds with Baba-Ina, or the precise amount.
Baba-Ina denied all allegations of wrongdoing against him.
