An Aide - de - camp (ADC) Usman Shugaba attached to the wife of the President, Mrs Aisha Buhari has been arrested over alleged gunshots fired within the Presidential Villa on Thursday night, NEWS FLAKES NG learnt.
According to a report by ThisDay, there were gunshots in the Presidential Villa, State House, Abuja on Thursday night, when the First Lady’s Aide-de-camp, Usman Shugaba, attempted to force President Muhammadu Buhari’s Special Assistant, Sabiu Yusuf, into self -isolation over COVID-19 fears.
State House sources told reporters that trouble started when Sabiu, President Buhari’s nephew, returned to his residence at the precincts of the Presidential Villa, just outside the Pilot gate, after a trip to Lagos where he had gone to meet his wife who had just delivered a new baby.

Citing COVID-19 protocols, sources said, the First Lady Aisha Buhari and three of her children, Zahra, Halima and Yusuf, accompanied by some of her security aides led by the Aide-de-Camp, on Thursday night went to the residence of Sabiu located just outside the Presidential Villa to demand that he should self-isolate for 14 days, so as not to endanger the first family.

NEWS FLAKES NG gathered that the encounter was said to have degenerated into a heated argument as Sabiu insisted he was not the only aide to travel to Lagos saying that the new Chief of Staff, Prof. Ibrahim Gambari, is in Lagos every weekend till he settles in Abuja, and wondered why the double standard requiring his self isolation for visiting his own wife who just delivered a new baby.
Meanwhile, the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, had called on the President, Muhammadu Buhari to speak out on alleged shooting and security breaches within the precincts of the Presidential villa, an act in which it condemned in totality describing it as a reflection of the insecurity challenges across the country and the inability of President Buhari to adequately address same.
Recall that NEWS FLAKES NG had earlier reported that the first lady, Mrs Aisha Buhari had called on the top police hierarchy including the Inspector General of Police to release his Aide who has been allegedly detained illegally.
