Aisha Buhari, First lady and wife of the President has accused Mamman Daura’s family of denying her access to an apartment at the presidential villa.
Aisha has been drawn in a long-battle with Mamman Daura, her husband’s nephew, who lives in the Villa with the First family.
Last weekend, a video of the President’s wife reacting angrily to being denied access to her apartment, went viral.
Fatima, daughter of Daura, who recorded the video, accused the First Lady of attacking her family violently.
Mrs. Buhari has however explained in an interview with BBC Hausa why she reacted angrily in the video.
She said it was because she was denied access to parts of the villa by Daura and his family.
She accused Fatima of recording the video while mocking her during her angry reaction
“I was the one in that video and this person you see standing at my back are my security personnel,” Mrs. Buhari began.
“It was Fatima, the daughter of Mamman Daura that shot the video in front of my security and everybody there. She was actually recording the whole thing right in front of me and was laughing and mocking me.
“They did that because my husband sacked them from the house. He told them to get all their belongings and leave the house for my son (Yusuf) to occupy.
“I left them and wanted to get to one of the rooms but they prevented me from getting through. I left them and took another way yet I met the store locked.”
