The war of words between the first lady and Mamman Daura`s family got messier on Monday when Aisha Buhari revealed that she was denied access to an apartment at the presidential villa by the family of Daura, Buhari’s nephew, because her husband sacked them from the house so that her son, Yusuf will occupy it.
Mrs. Buhari was reacting to a statement credited to Fatima, daughter of Daura, that the first lady attacked her inside the presidential villa.
In a video which trended on Friday, Buhari’s wife was seen miffed and complaining about being denied access to her apartment.
Speaking with BBC Hausa, Aisha reportedly confirmed that she was the one speaking in the video, noting that Fatima recorded the video laughing and mocking her.
Premium Times reported that Aisha said she reacted angrily because she was denied access to parts of the villa by Daura and his family.
According to her, Daura’s family acted the way they did because Buhari had “sacked” them from the house.
She said, “I was the one in that video and this person you see standing at my back are my security personnel,” the first lady was quoted to have 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.”
