First Lady Aisha Buhari has returned to the country after going “Missing in Action” for six months.
The First Lady had quietly relocated to Dubai, United Arab Emirates, after Hanan, one of her daughters, got married in September 2021 but she is currently at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
She was said to have returned quietly to the country on Wednesday night without any fanfare.
As a sign that she was back, it was learnt that her office was fumigated between yesterday and today Thursday and she might appear there on Friday.
Some wild reports said she relocated because of insecurity, while some others said she went to seek medical attention.
In August 2020, she was secretly flown to Dubai for treatment of a nagging neck pain, amid the pandemic.
Many Nigerians expressed outrage over the trip, as it happened during the COVID lockdown.
Her two-month holiday in the London in 2019 fed the rumor mill in Nigeria with false news that President Buhari was about to take another wife.
There were concerns over her whereabouts during the long absence but the presidency avoided making comments on the issue.
But one of Hajiya Aisha’s aides, Kabiru Dodo, finally opened up on the current absence in Jalingo, Taraba State capital.
Dodo, who spoke on the development while presenting some items to widows on behalf of the president’s wife, faulted the report that the first lady left the country because of insecurity in Aso Rock.
