- Aisha Buhari wants police boss Adamu to release her held aides in line with guidelines on the detention of citizens by security agencies during the current coronavirus pandemic
- The first lady did not elaborate on why they were arrested in the first place
- Like many other social media users, Aisha sometimes posts her personal concerns and demands on her Twitter handle
The First Lady of Nigeria, Aisha Buhari, has called on the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, to order the release her aides who were recently arrested.
The wife of the Nigerian leader, Muhammadu Buhari, issued the demand in one of her tweets late on Friday, June 12.
Aisha said the release of her aides was important in order to prevent them from contracting the dreaded coronavirus disease while in detention.
The first lady also urged the security agencies to follow President Buhari's guidelines on quarantining of people with suspected to have come in contact with those infected with COVID-19 disease.
Although Legit.ng could not immediately verify the claims, reports online claimed that Aisha's tweets followed the arrest of her aides on the order of an aide to her husband.
The said presidential aide had reportedly travelled to Lagos and returned to Abuja but refused to self-isolate for 14 days as required by the Quarantine Act before returning to work at the Aso Rock villa.
Aisha's aides had reportedly thrown out the aide in order to protect the First Family but the aide retaliated by getting them arrested.
Just like many other users of social media, Aisha is known for tweeting out her personal concerns.
Just days ago, Legit.ng reported that Aisha Buhari announced the death of one of her staff, Sani Yekini, on Wednesday night, June 10.
Ms Buhari made the announcement via her personal Twitter handle.
According to the first lady, Yekini worked as a protocol officer in her office for four years. Legit.ng gathers that Yekini's death was due to diabetes.
Earlier this year, the Police boss Mohammed Adamu, warned against unnecessary arrests and detention of suspects. He also enjoined Nigerians to voluntarily adhere to the orders of relevant authorities concerning the disease.
