Fatima, the daughter of President Muhammadu Buhari’s nephew, Mamman Daura, has told her account of what really happened with the First Lady, revealing that they were assaulted by her.
Aisha Buhari just returned to the country after months of absence and it seems her arrival has attracted controversial and issues in the Presidential Villa.
The First Lady had said that she had flown out of the country to have a well-deserved rest and her return had sparked speculations of the President marrying another wife. This rumor was debunked almost immediately after it spread.
Shortly after, a recent video was seen online in which the First Lady was in a tantrum, enraged over her inability to access a part of the Villa as a result of the door being locked. She had admitted that it was really her in the video and most people had wondered what was behind the episode. Now, the rest of the story has surfaced, courtesy of Fatima.

In a lengthy post, Mamman Daura’s daughter said Aisha Buhari hurled a metal chair at them (her sister was almost hit by it) in her moment of rage. Reasons? See her post below:
“My name is Fatima. I am a daughter to Malam Mamman Daura… if one reasons well, he or she will understand that it is not possible to say that the wife of the president is denied access to her apartment but let me give a context,” she said.
“The apartment in question is called the Glass House. You know that there are several houses and apartments in the villa. When the president got into office, he gave the Glass House to our father, Mamman Daura.
“You all know that they are friends and are related, more so, they grew up together like twins. When he became president, he gave the Glasshouse to our dad and said he should stay there. Our dad stayed there for three years now until when the president’s son, Yusuf, had an accident and went to Germany for treatment.
“When he returned, the president told our dad to move out of that apartment to an even bigger one in the villa, that Yusuf is going to stay and be treated in the Glass House. The Glass House is closer to the main presidential apartment and that will make easier access to him by his mother. It is not in her apartment which is in the main apartment.”
“(On that day) My mom and dad were not around. So, my dad instructed me and my elder sister, both of us are working and we go to work every morning, that we should come on a Saturday and move our belongings to the new apartment the president instructed.
“We planned to park out then and have even concluded moving all the things. All of a sudden, in the afternoon, as we were busy on that errand of packing our belongings when we heard noise from outside. I was in an inner room in the house while my sister was in an outer one close to the main gate of the apartment. So my sister went out before I could come out.
“On getting there, it was the wife of the president. When she came, the door was locked and she picked a metal chair and broke the door. I have sent the picture to you. My sister that went out was almost hit by the chair. She threw the chair which broke through the door and almost hit my sister.
“I was so shocked and afraid of getting there because she was shouting and reigning abuses words and saying we should move out of that apartment. That she has never seen this kind of thing before. I then went back and picked my phone because if one is to say that she acted that way, no one would believe it without a proof. She has already been saying a lot of things depicting that she is being suppressed.Fatima Daura -pulse.ng
Fatima’s account may prompt a reaction from the First Lady, who may have her side of the story to tell. However this ends, one thing that may not be easily forgotten is the hostility between the ‘warring factions’.
