The First Lady, Aisha Buhari, has departed London for Abuja, weeks after being away from the country and away from the public eye.
Through her verified Twitter handle @ashiambuhari, she tweeted “Wife of the Nigerian Ambassador to the United Kingdom, Mrs. Modupe Oguntade seeing me off. Thank you so much, madam.”
On Thursday, October 10, social media was awash with stories of Buhari getting set to marry Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Umar Farouq.
The wife of the president was rumoured to have returned to the country to cause an upset over the alleged affair, but was shut in by ‘Aso Rock cabal’.
A fake video also circulated on social media claiming Mrs. Buhari was locked up in an apartment at the presidential villa after she returned to the country.
Farouq is currently in New York, United States, where she is promoting a UN campaign against poverty.
Buhari was joined by unprecedented worshippers at the Aso Rock Mosque to observe the ju’mat prayers.
The worshippers condemned those behind the fake news, calling on well-meaning citizens to always shun unverified social media reports.
