Aisha’s other security aides have also been returned to the Presidential Villa.

It was reported the clash between aides of the First Lady and the President’s Personal Assistant, Sabiu Yusuf aka Tunde.

Buhari’s wife was accompanied by Shugaba, Escort Commander, DSP Sheriff Kazeem (son of former Inspector General, Hafiz Ringim), and four riot policemen.

The confrontation led to a brawl and the ADC allegedly fired gunshots.

Yusuf ran to the residence of his uncle and Buhari’s nephew, Mamman Daura, who then communicated the matter to the president. Buhari then instructed for a panel to investigate the matter.
