Aisha Buhari has shared her own side of the story in the ongoing public showdown between President Buhari and Mamman Daura’s family.
Recall LIB reported that Fatima Daura accused the First Lady of breaking the door to the apartment they were given by President Buhari with a metal chair. According to her, Aisha Buhari who wanted to eject them from the apartment was shouting and ‘raining’ abusive words on her family.
“When she (Aisha) came, the door was locked and she picked a metal chair and broke the door. I have sent the picture to you. My sister that went out was almost hit by the chair. She threw the chair which broke through the door and almost hit my sister.
“I was so shocked and afraid of getting there because she was shouting and raining abusive words and saying we should move out of that apartment. That she has never seen this kind of thing before. I then went back and picked my phone because if one is to say that she acted that way, no one would believe it without proof. She has already been saying a lot of things depicting that she is being suppressed.
“So I recorded it to show our parents and the security, so that they will know the truth should anything happen. Because the way she was raging and shouting, I was thinking that she would pick something and hit us with it or something like that. That was why we recorded it. Had it been we wanted to release the video, we would have done it earlier. But you know if a video clip enters one or two hands, you can’t control where it will get to.
“There are even other clips that have not been released. I will send them to you to see how she was insulting the security and how she drove them away saying who are they protecting and calling them bloody idiots. It’s all on the video clip. That was what happened,” Fatima said.
However reacting to the allegation in an interview with BBC Hausa, Aisha Buhari who returned to the country on October 13 after staying abroad for 2 months, explained the circumstances behind the viral video in which she was spotted shouting. The First Lady said she reacted angrily after being denied access to parts of the villa by Mr Daura and his family.
“I was the one in that video and this person you see standing at my back are my security personnel,” the first lady said.
“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,” she said.
