Turai Yar'Adua's 60year old housekeeper arrested over missing N91m goods

A 60year old housekeeper of the wife of the late former President Umaru Yar'Adua, Hajiya Turai Yar'Adua, has been arrested by officers of the Katsina State Police Command, over missing goods worth N91m.
The arrest was disclosed on Tuesday in Katsina by the state Commissioner of Police, Alhaji Usman Abdullahi, as he addressed newsmen.
Abdullahi said, “The Police have arrested Alhaji Yusuf Sarkin-gida after a formal complaint by Hajiya Turai Yar’Adua to the police two weeks ago.
“The suspect is the custodian of all the keys and property of Hajiya Turai Yar’Adua for the past 40 years.
“There are 37 boxes in the custody of the suspect, but only 27 boxes are in the store.
“The several items in the 27 boxes are completely missing and the suspect has failed to give full explanation on the goods and items in the boxes.”
The CP said the suspect was in police custody where he was assisting them to conduct intensive investigation on the missing items.
Responding to the allegations however, the spokesperson for the Sarkin-gida’s family, Alhaji Mohammed Yusuf, said their father was innocent of the charge levelled against him.
He appealed to human rights organisations to come to the rescue of their father; saying the arrest had thrown the family into confusion.
