Staff Sergeant Sa’idu Afaka, a driver to the president of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari has been nabbed by the DSS after allegedly tricking him into signing deal worth millions of Naira.
According to Saharareporters, a source in the Presidency disclosed that the driver had capitalised on Buhari’s alleged dementia to perpetrate the fraud.
The incident was reportedly hushed up by the presidency to avoid backlash from the public.
“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 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.
