Nigerians knock Mamman Daura, daughter for ‘disrespecting’ Aisha Buhari

Mamman Daura

Nigerians have attacked President Muhammadu Buhari’s nephew, Mamman Daura, and his daughter, Fatima, for what they describe as disrespect shown to First Lady Aisha Buhari.

Fatima had recorded an incident involving Mrs Buhari speaking angrily as she inquired why she was refused access to an apartment at the presidential villa.


President Buhari gave Daura’s family an apartment at the villa but asked them in 2017 to move to another apartment also at the villa to make room for his son, Yusuf, who had an accident.

Consequently, Aisha sought to eject Daura’s family on a particular day but was restricted, prompting her outburst.

The First Lady told the BBC in a recent interview that Fatima was mocking her as she recorded the video.

Aisha has been critical of Daura as one of the supposed members of a cabal who have allegedly hijacked Buhari’s government.

Nigerians on Twitter have attacked Mamman Daura, saying his family should show more respect to Aisha.
