The senior special assistant to the president on media and publicity, Mr. Garba Shehu, says the abduction of the district head of Daura, Alhaji Musa Uba, who is also the husband to president Muhammadu Buhari’s Niece, Hajiya Bilki, shows that security agencies are not giving any town preferential treatment.
The president’s spokesman said this during an interview on a private television station in Abuja.
The abducted district head is also the father-in-law to Buhari’s aide-de-camp, col. Mohammed Abubakar
Mr. Shehu, however, scored the Buhari administration 98 per cent in the fight against insurgency.
He also defended the decision of the president to travel to the united kingdom for 11 days during the height of insecurity.
Mr. Shehu said the president was entitled to rest even as he claimed that Buhari was in firm control of the nation during his time away. The president’s spokesman said security agencies were doing their best but noted that things would not change overnight but would take some time.
