Wife of the President, Aisha Buhari has called on Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, to release her aides who were detained only recently.
According to her, the aides were arrested on the order of Idris Kassim, the Chief Security Officer to the President.
Taking to Twitter to ask the police to release them, she stated that the IGP should realize that the coronavirus is still around, and it would be wise to release them in order to prevent their contracting the virus.
“That Covid-19 is real and still very much around in our nation is not in doubt. Consequently, I call on all relevant government agencies to enforce the Quarantine Act signed by Mr President and ensure no one is found violating this law and the NCDC guidelines especially on interstate travel without the necessary exemptions for movement of essentials.

Anyone who does that should at the very least be made to undergo a-14 day mandatory isolation no matter who the person is, no one should be above the law and the Police command will do well to remember that.
“Finally, I call on the IGP to release my assigned Staff who are still in the custody of the police in order to avoid putting their lives in danger or exposure to Covid-19 while in their custody, Aisha Buhari said.
