"Politicians are soiling my name," alleged bribe giver speaks
Ms Buhari was further reported to have maintained that involving her name in the scandal for political reasons were not only malicious but wicked.
In a report by The Street Journal, Ms Buhari reportedly broke her silence on her alleged involvement in the Halliburton bribery scandal.
Ms Buhari reportedly stressed that though she shares the same name with the President’s wife, Mrs Aisha Buhari, she's neither the person referred to in the bribery scandal by the Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose nor by the ex-EFCC boss, Ibrahim Lamorde.
“This is like pouring water on a sleeping person. I have never done anything with Halliburton, I don’t know the colour of the company. I am not in the line of business with Halliburton, so linking me with the bribery is wicked”, Ms Buhari allegedly told the medium.
Continuing, she said, “They are desperate to cover their dirty track and link my name with the scandal that they have to first of all steal my passport. My passport was stolen early this year. And to give credibility to their story, details from the passport were used. They should come to the US, to find out If they are curious about the case.
“If somebody commits crime in the US, he or she must face trial. Have you heard I am being tried in the US? Let them stop this malicious allegation against me that they do not have proof of, I hate people who do not cross check facts before talking, they should find out in the US the kind of person I am because I belong to organisations there.
“If they think they are politician and can break the law and go free, they should realise that nobody is above the laws of a country including me,”, she disclosed.
