Mrs. Zahra Buhari-Indimi, one of the daughters of President Muhammadu Buhari has denied a report that she defrauded the federal government of any amount.
In a letter written to an online news platform, which was dated March 8, 2021 and signed by her lawyer, Nasiru Aliyu (SAN), she accused the medium of “injurious defamation”.
The publication had alleged that one Nasiru Danu wired N2.5billion out of the said N51billion to Buhari’s daughter through her “foundation”.
However, in the letter written by her lawyers, Zahra said “no any foundation owned by her was transferred or credited with such money”.
The letter maintained that while she is truly the daughter of President Muhammadu Buhari, she has never perpetrated any fraud nor involved in any fraudulent activity.
“Our client categorically states that she did not defraud the Federal Republic of Nigeria N51 Billion or N2.5 Billion or any sum of money at all in any way.
“Our client is a law-abiding citizen and fulltime housewife supported by her husband.”
Zahra demanded a retraction of the publication, and a public apology in three national dailies within seven days of receipt of the letter or she will “seek all remedies available in law”.
