President Buhari fires his security details over Aso Villa shooting

President Muhammadu Buhari has fired his security details and other persons in Aso Villa for their role in the crisis between his wife, Aisha, and his assistant Sabiu “Tunde” Yusuf.

 

Those fired by Buhari on Wednesday, June 17, included his Chief Personal Security Officer, Chief Detail to President, ADC to the First Lady, Escort Commander, ADC National Defence Council, and 37 others in Aso Villa.

 

According to Sahara Reporters, President Buhari decided to take the step after Mamman Daura, his nephew and one of his closest confidants, was seen weeping as he made his way to his office. Daura was said to have informed Buhari that his security aides were not only after Yusuf’s life but his own as well.

Consequently, Buhari gave the nod for all persons involved in the alleged threat to the lives of the two men to be removed.

 

Recall that there was crisis in Aso Villa last week when Yusuf refused to embark on a 14-day isolation period after returning to Abuja from a trip to Lagos. Upon his return, he drove straight to the villa where he resides but he was denied access by the aides of the first lady who insisted he goes into self-isolation at a different location since he was returning from Lagos which is the epicenter of COVID-19 in Nigeria.

Looters

The Plateau State Government on Wednesday begun the prosecution of over 300 suspected looters and arsonists in the state.
They were accused of looting, criminal trespass and inciting public disturbance, among other charges.
The suspects, who had been in military and police detention after they were arrested in different parts of Jos and the Bukuru metropolis between Saturday and Sunday, were moved to the Bassa Local Government Area on Wednesday for arraignment.

The defendants were arraigned one after the other at Jebbu Bassa Area Court before several judges including Justices N S Dashe, Adar Roseline Baraje, and L B Longs as well as Lawal Sulaiman, among others.

In all the cases brought before the judges, the prosecutors from the state Ministry of Justice told the court that the accused persons committed the offences against the state and should be prosecuted according to the law.
The defence counsels, however, pleaded with the court to temper justice with mercy for the accused persons, particularly as they were first offenders.
The defence counsels also pleaded for short sentencing with an option of fine after their clients pleaded guilty to the offences.
