Buhari's Driver Detained By DSS For Tricking President To Sign Fraudulent Multi-million Naira Deal Document Dies

Master Warrant Officer Saidu Afaka, official driver of President Muhammadu Buhari, who was recently detained by the Department of State Services after tricking his principal to sign a fraudulent document to make millions of naira is dead.

A statement by Presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu, said Afaka died at the State House Clinic on Tuesday after a prolonged illness.

Buhari extends heartfelt condolences to the family of the deceased.

The statement read, “President Muhammadu Buhari extends heartfelt condolences to the family of Afaka on the passing of Master Warrant Officer, Sa’idu Afaka, his official driver, who died at the State House Clinic on Tuesday after a prolonged illness.

“President Buhari, who also commiserates with the Government and people of Kaduna State, described the late Afaka as an honest, capable and reliable person who handled his job with utmost care and responsibility.

“The President recalls that in 2016 the soldier, while on pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia, picked up a bag containing a large amount of foreign currencies and turned it over to the National Hajj Commission, an action which earned him praises from the Saudi and Nigerian authorities.

“President Buhari prays Almighty Allah to 'bless the soul of the departed with an elevated place in heavens,’ committing the family and friends to divine comfort and patience.”

Afaka’s death is coming few days after SaharaReporters exposed how he capitalised on Buhari dementia to trick him to sign a fraudulent document to make millions of naira.

It was learnt that the whole affair was however hushed up by the Presidency, which did not want another scandal in the press.

"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.

SaharaReporters further gathered that it is generally known in the President's circle and among his cabinet members that Buhari has been showing some symptoms such as forgetfulness, limited social skills and impaired thinking abilities.

Therefore, he does not go through the rigours of reading reports or properly vetting documents as required of his office.

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.

Ironically, the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON) in 2017 promised to reward Afaka, who had reportedly returned some lost items during the 2016 Hajj in Saudi Arabia.

NAHCON said Afaka found and returned to the commission a bag containing 400 dollars, N60,370 and 149 Saudi Riyals and a cell phone belonging to Adamu Umar, a Niger State pilgrim.

However, this is not the first time a scandal such as this would be experienced in Aso Villa. A similar scandal was experienced in Aso Villa in 2018 when the First Lady, Aisha, ensured the arrest of her Aide De Camp, whom she accused of defrauding her.

She had alleged that Sani Baba-Inna, a chief superintendent of police, received huge donations to the tune of N2.5 billion from politicians and business people on her behalf and then kept the cash to himself.

Following her allegation, the then Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, ordered the arrest of Baba-Inna and compelled him to return the money.

Eventually, the police could not establish that Baba-Inna committed the crime and an angry Aisha asked the DSS to take over the case, believing the police authorities were trying to protect one of their own.

Ordinary driver trick a whole president to sign off money not even a P.A, what will a driver and boss conversation really look like for the boss to start signing official documents?

Imagine a bank MD claiming his driver tricked him to sign documents?

Yet everyone is blaming and arresting the driver rather than the dullard and slowpoke in Chief even though I know the driver is just a frontier for a cabal

If buhari is the head of a private firm, he will have been fired long time ago

Soon one aso rock maid will trick buhari to sleep with her, she will get pregnant and buhari will claim ignorance

Lol.......As serious as it may sound,it’s still funny that a driver to a single man can dupe a leader of a nation to signing papers,like I still don’t understand it,Buhari was drunk or what? Probably this man has signed a paper that says Nigeria has been sold to a person or group of persons sef......Gosh this country is in serious mess!!!

According to this story...

* The president of the most populated black country cannot read. How else will he sign a document with verifying the contents of the documents if he can read.

* He has been aware of his driver's incarceration, and was also away of how he returned a huge amount of money some years back. It will be safe to say that Buhari has so much love and respect for this man yet he couldn't do anything to help his driver despite being the C in C. Meaning Buhari isn't in charge of the affairs of this country. Someone behind the scene is calling the shots.

* It has been confirmed from more than one member of Buhari's inner caucus that he's (president Buhari) suffering from dementia. Question is what is he still doing in aso rock when it's obvious that he doesn't have the intellect to govern this nation, why not hand over power to his vice and attend to his health?

If the president can be tricked to sign a document with reading, it shows that Buhari is not fit to head a family meeting.

Meanwhile, Salami, Gambari and Co have used him as a sacrifice to close detailed investigations in the fulanicratic cabalistic cannibalistic government of vegetative Buhari
