President Muhammadu Buhari’s driver identified as Staff Sergeant Sa’idu Afaka was recently detained by the Department of State Services (DSS) for tricking his principal into signing a fraudulent document to make millions of naira.
According to SaharaReporters, a source in the Presidency disclosed that the driver capitalised on Buhari’s dementia to trick him into signing the fraudulent multi-million naira deal document.
Though the details of the deal are still sketchy, it was learnt that the whole affair was hushed up by the Presidency, which did not want another scandal in the press.
“The fraud was perpetrated some weeks ago but it was kind of hushed up so that it would not leak to the press,” the source said.
It was further gathered that it is generally known in the President’s circle and among his cabinet members that Buhari has been showing some symptoms such as forgetfulness, limited social skills and impaired thinking abilities.
Therefore, he does not go through the rigours of reading reports or properly vetting documents as required of his office.
It was learnt that the President’s former Aide De Camp, who recently left, reported the deal to the DSS as he was not carried along in the deal.
“The driver made the President to sign a fraudulent document. The man is the main driver of the President. He got the President to sign a document from which he made millions of naira, capitalising on Buhari’s dementia.
“He was subsequently arrested by the DSS and detained for several days. The ADC to the President who recently left reported the deal to the DSS after finding out that he was sidestepped in the deal,” the source added.
KanyiDaily recalls that a confidential study on President Buhari’s health revealed that he is suffering from a combination of prostate cancer, sickle cell anaemia, Crohn’s disease and dementia.
