Buhari’s Daughter Threatens Sahara Reporters with Lawsuit over N2.5b Fraud Claim

Buhari’s Daughter Threatens Sahara Reporters with Lawsuit over N2.5b Fraud Claim

The daughter of President Muhammadu Buhari of Nigeria, Zahra Buhari-Indimi, has denied that she received the sum of N2.5 or any amount for that matter from anyone defrauding Nigeria.

She was reacting to a story published by an online news medium, Sahara Reporters on March 5, 2021 titled, ‘How APC Chieftain, Danu, Custom Boss Defrauded Nigerian Government of N51bn, Wired N2.5bn To Buhari’s Daughter’.

The publication claimed that Nasiru Danu wired N2.5bn out of the said N51bn to Buhari’s daughter through her “foundation”.

Zahra said in a letter dated March 8, 2021 signed by her lawyer, Nasiru Aliyu (SAN), and addressed to Sahara Reporters that “no any foundation owned by her was transferred or credited with such money”.

She accused Sahara Reporters of “injurious defamation” and demanded that that the medium retracts 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”.

The letter also stated, “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.”
