It was a dramatic moment at the National headquarters of the Department of State Security on Monday when a Lady simply identified as Amina Mohammed indicted dismissed Secretary to the government of the federation, Babachir Lawal and sister of the first lady in a N50m fraud.
The alleged who was arrested for impersonating First lady to defraud Dr Alexander Chika Okafor (a.k.a. Chicason) of the amount.
Addressing journalists, Public Relations Officer of the service, Peter Afunaya, said the DSS arrested the suspect, Amina Mohammed also known as Justina Oluoha, for parading herself as the First Lady of Kogi State.
He said Amina defrauded one Dr. Alexander Chika Okafor (a.k.a. Chicason) of N50million in the villa with respect to a Court of Appeal property in Lagos. He added that Amina had promised to help him buy the property through the First Lady.
The property was said to have been part of those under the Presidential Implementation Committee on Lease of Federal Government Properties.
“She used the false identity to evade protocol and security scrutiny, thus gaining unauthorised access into the villa and particularly the residence of the First Lady and Wife of the President, Hajia Aisha Buhari,” he said.
“She took advantage of the fact that personalities of first ladies, ministers and certain categories of officials are not known through rigorous protocol and security checks at the Villa posts.
“Investigations have shown that this unholy enterprise is not to the knowledge of the First Lady. What Amina simply did was to use the First Lady’s name and office as bait to lure and defraud her victims.”
The suspect, on the other hand, was crying profusely and raining curses on the first lady. She said;
“Your sisters are involved in this business. It is not true; I cannot be a fraudster. I cannot accept this allegation. Former SGF Babachir is involved in this fraud. Maryatu, your sister, is involved in this fraud.
“Chicason has been buying government property and he has been doing it. All the directors who collected bribes before bidding would be out. Chikason knows the process. Entering villa is not just by fraud but Maryatu, the First Lady’s sister, is involved.”
