Aisha Buhari, wife of Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari, has denied allegations by Senator Misau that the Inspector general of Police bought her two Prado SUVs.
Misau made the allegation when he appeared before the Senate Ad Hoc Committee on Investigation of Various Allegations Levelled Against the Police, the Inspector General of Police and the Police Service Commission.
Misau stated that Idris had purchased the vehicles which were not allocated in the budget, for Mrs Buhari’s personal use, even when she had asked for a Sienna and Hiace.
According to Misau, details of how Idris gave Mrs. Buhari the two SUV were contained in the documents the police boss submitted to court in the suit instituted against him by the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Mr. Abubakar Malami, on behalf of the Federal Government.
He said: “I still have some contract papers that the IG himself submitted to the court, where the First Lady through her aide-de-camp requested a Toyota Hiace and a Sienna jeep. The same day that the ADC wrote, the IG minuted that she should be given two jeeps. And it is not part of the appropriation. If you look at the appropriation, there is nowhere they said the First Lady should be given two jeeps.”
But responding to the allegation via Twitter, Mrs Buhari said she still uses her personal cars.
“I am still using my personal cars,” she tweeted.
