EFCC probes Aisha Buhari’s ₦3.8 billion secret house
Aisha Muhammadu Buhari is the owner of a lakeside mansion located at number 9, Udo Udoma Street, Asokoro, Abuja.
Investigations revealed that Aisha and her husband own a hidden property sited at an high end location in Asokoro astride an beside a lake few blocks away from Aso Rock Presidential Villa fence.
Since Buhari’s inauguration, fierce looking security personnel presently man the property where it is believed Aisha holds private meetings with families and friends.
Professional estate surveyors valued just the land on which the property sits. The estimated cost, according to current land prizes in Abuja is over N1.2 billion naira.
Each of the three duplexes built in the premesis is valued at N800 million and this, when added to the cost of the land is approximately N3.6 billion.
Aisha Buhari rents one of the duplexes. It was home to a former High Commissioner of an African country to Nigeria.
The discovery of the Aisha and Buhari Asokoro mansion may have cast another huge credibility question on the modest and anti-corruption credentials that got him elected on March 28, 2015.
Recall that Aisha Buhari was exposed for wearing a Cartier Baignoire Folle 18-Carat White Gold Diamond Ladies Watch that cost £34,500 (N10, 453, 000) to the presidential inauguration on May 29, 2015.
Aisha and her husband played the card of modesty and paupers while campaigning for presidency. He claimed he was a pastoral farmer with 150 cows.
In January 2015, reporters uncovered another expensive lifestyle of Zahra, the fifth daughter of President Muhammadu Buhari, an undergraduate of the University of Surrey, United Kingdom
The exposure of Buhari’s hidden assets is coming at a time Nigerians have intensified calls for the new President and Vice-President to publicly declare their assets as they promised to do during the presidential campaign.
As at the time of filing this report, the EFCC is yet to commence probing of the said property. Will they ever probe it?
