A Former chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes and Commission, Ibrahim Lamorde, has said that the Aisha Buhari named in the bribery scandal involving a U.S. Congressman, Williams Jefferson, is not Aisha, President Muhammadu Buhari’s wife.
“I can tell you authoritatively that the Aisha Buhari named in that case is not President Buhari’s wife,” Mr. Lamorde said when contacted on Tuesday morning by Premium times. “It is another Aisha Buhari entirely.
“I was the director of operations at the EFCC at the time so I know about the case very well. I can tell you that it is not her (President Buhari’s wife). That much we established.”
Mr. Lamorde, who was EFCC chairman until he was removed in December 2015 by President Buhari, is currently on course at the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPSS).
