SaharaReporters has published the results of its investigation into years of criminal activity by a person who is pretending to be Aisha Buhari.
Media outlet can credibly claim that the woman who acts under the name of Aisha Buhari is actually not the First Lady of Nigeria.
According to journalists, earlier the self-proclaimed wife of President Muhammadu Buhari who is living in Virginia pretended to be his daughter and was involved in a series of illegal acts.
The findings show at least six legal cases in Virginia courts, particularly the Fairfax County General District Court, where the US-based Mrs Buhari figures. Most of these cases involve debts or wage garnishment.
To prove the innocence of genuine Aisha Buhari the reporters stress that one of the cases, which was heard on December 3, 2015, was appealed by a defendant named Aisha M. Buhari at a time when the First Lady Aisha Buhari was in Nigeria.
Besides, it was not physically possible for Buhari’s wife to be in two places simultaneously at the moment when the alleged civil and criminal cases were ongoing in the mid-2000s in America. At that time the real one Aisha Buhari was living in Nigeria.
Giving the details of the cases Sahara Reporters write: “During the course of our investigation, we found that a property was sold on June 27, 2014 by Aisha Buhari to one Chiagozia Agbarakwe for $380,000. Evidence shows that that Aisha Buhari purchased the property in 2013 for the sum of $335,000, putting her in Fairfax County, Virginia, during that period.
In addition to court evidence, property records, and a list of known addresses belonging to an Aisha Buhari living in the United States, the New York Times in 2007 photographed the Aisha Buhari, who claimed to be the daughter of then General Muhammadu Buhari.
SaharaReporters has also obtained a copy of Aisha Buhari’s Nigerian International Passport, which shares the same profile as the photograph published in the New York Times, but she clearly looks nothing like the First Lady Aisha Buhari.
SaharaReporters contacted many of the aggrieved individuals who filed legal cases against Aisha Buhari, or their legal counsel, but none wanted to go on record due to the sensitive nature of their legal proceedings. Several of them did, however, confirm that Aisha Buhari was in the United States during the time her alleged activity took place.”
