- The recent release of a video by Mamman Daura’s daughter, Fatima, has been faulted by a presidency source

- The source also faulted Daura’s daughter for not acknowledging the abuse she first vented before the first lady reacted
The recent release of a video by Mamman Daura’s daughter, Fatima, was faulted by a presidency source on Monday, October 14, The Nation reports.
Released in the wake of rumors stating that President Muhammadu Buhari was going to take a second wife, the video showed part of the body of the president’s wife, Aisha, as she was shouting on the need for the Dauras to leave an accommodation in the Villa.
However, Legit.ng gathers that a source within the presidency, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said the video was shot over a year ago when Yusuf, the president’s son, had a power bike accident in Abuja.
The source said President Buhari had approved the order for the Daura’s to vacate the accommodation, as it was needed for the then recuperating Yusuf.
She said: “By now the airwaves are awash with Fatima, Mamman Daura’s daughter, consenting to the fact that she indeed shot and leaked the now infamous video clip which showed the wife of the president in a very angry mood.
“The incident happened over a year ago when the wife of the president, on the instructions of the president, asked the Dauras to vacate their living quarters inside the Villa for a sick Yusuf Buhari who was recuperating after an accident.
“For this reason, the quarters were needed and the Dauras were asked to move to another part of the Villa. Long before the accident, Yusuf’s mother had requested in writing for the Dauras to vacate the place because the building is officially designated for the biological children of any serving president.
“The IG of police, DG DSS, NSA and the vice president who was the acting president, were all notified of this request. Despite this, the Dauras deliberately refused to comply with the instructions of the security agencies. Mamman Daura’s daughter, Fatima, did not say this in her interview
“What really was the intent for the video being released now if not for mischief? Fatima didn’t showcase her part in the drama where the door was locked against the first lady to deny her access to some areas of the Villa, neither did she acknowledge the abuse she first vented before the first lady reacted under the instruction of DG Lawal Daura, who was brought into government by Mamman Daura.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that Aisha Buhari cautioned Nigerians on the dangers of spreading fake news shortly after she returned from a medical leave from the United Kingdom.
Mrs Buhari gave the warning on Sunday, October 13 while fielding questions from journalists shortly after her arrival at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, in the early hours of Sunday.
The first lady was received at the airport by the wife of the Kogi state governor, Rashida Bello, senior special assistant to the president (administration), Dr Hajo Sani and wife of former governor of Nasarawa state, Mairo Al-Makura, among others.
