President Buhari Sacks 40 Security Agents Over Aso Villa Crisis


President Muhammadu Buhari has fired his securityAgents and other persons in Aso Villa over the role they played within the crisis between his wife, Aisha, and Sabiu 'Tunde' Yusuf, his assistant.


Those fired by Buhari on Wednesday included his Chief Personal Security Officer, Chief Detail to President, ADC to the first Lady, Escort Commander, ADC National Defence Council, and 37 others from the villa.

SaharaReporters had on Tuesday exclusively reported that President Buhari, who was deeply angered by the embarrassing crisis in Aso Villa, was preparing to fireside his security agents and a few top aides for the roles all of them played in dragging the Presidency into the mud.

It was gathered that President Buhari decided to take the step after Mamman Daura, his nephew and one among his closest confidants, was seen weeping as he made his way to his office.

Daura was said to have informed Buhari that his security aides weren't only after Yusuf’s life but his own also .

Buhari gave the nod for all persons involved within the alleged threat to the lives of the 2 men to be removed.
The crisis started with Yusuf's refusal to start a 14-day isolation period after returning to Abuja from a visit to Lagos last week.

This led to the arrest and eventual redeployment of the Aide De Camp to Mrs Buhari and other security Agents attached to her after it had been claimed that they threatened to kill the President's Assistant within the process of trying to urge him out of the Villa.

Inside sources say the newest step by the President could further stir the animosity among different power blocs in Aso Villa, especially with the first Lady vowing to take a pound of flesh for being embarrassed by Yusuf and other 'cabal' members.
