Zahra Buhari-Indimi, daughter of President Muhammadu Buhari, has made a legitimate move against Sahara Columnists over a report of being engaged with extortion.
The online distribution had guaranteed a source said that a tribal leader of the All Reformists Congress Nasiru Danu and some high ranking representatives of the Nigeria Customs Administration deceitfully wired N2.5 billion to the president’s daughter out of a sum of N51 billion supposedly washed.
The source further claimed that the said sum was transferred to Mrs Buhari-Indimi through her foundation of which Mr Danu is a signatory.
However, the president’s daughter said in an Instagram post on Wednesday night that she took the legal step having been subjected to cyberbullying since her father became president in 2015 and was re-elected in 2019.
“This was a decision I had to take to protect myself and my growing family from cyberbullying, non-investigative and lazy journalism,” she said.
“It is unfair to say the least. I have taken so much in the last 6 years and I’m about to practise what I preached in my first episode of #inconversationwithzahra that held in November 2019.”
The president’s daughter in a letter endorsed by her insight Nasiru Adamu to Sahara Columnists requested from the firm a withdrawal with a statement of regret conveyed with similar unmistakable quality on its foundation and three public dailies for seven successive days.
