EFCC: Former First Lady ‘Turai Yar’Adua’ Runs to Obasanjo For Help
Turai Yar’Adua, wife of President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua on Saturday visited former President Olusegun Obasanjo in his residence in Abeokuta, the Ogun state capital.
According to PREMIUM TIMES, Mrs. Yar’Adua was reportedly accompanied to the former president’s residence by businessman Kenny Martins. She met privately with Mr. Obasanjo for more than an hour before departing in a convoy of three cars.
A source privy to discussions during the meeting said, ”She specifically intimated the former President of the ongoing probe of one of her daughters, Zainab, by the EFCC. She believed it is a witch-hunt, a ploy by the Buhari government to get at her family”.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission had on July 22 summoned Zainab, wife of former Kebbi State Governor, Saidu Dakingari, over alleged N2billion fraud perpetrated during her husband’s tenure as governor.
