A middle aged woman, Amina Mohammed also known as Justina Onuoha, has been paraded by the Department of State Services for allegedly gaining entry into the Presidential Villa posing as First Lady of Kogi State.

Onuoha was said to have gained unauthorised access into the Villa and used the name and office of the Wife of the President, Aisha Buhari to defraud unsuspecting members of the public.

Public Relations Officer, Peter Afunanya said this while parading the suspect at a media briefing at the Service Headquarters, in Abuja, on Monday.

The DSS spokesman told reporters that the suspect used more than one alias and false identities to ply her trade.

He said, “Amina Mohammed also known as Justina Oluoha, Amina Villa,  had on the November 22, 2017, paraded herself as the First Lady of Kogi State; she used the false identity to invade protocol and scrutiny thus gaining unauthorised access into the Villa and particularly the residence of the First Lady and Wife of the President, Hajia Aisha Buhari.

“She took advantage of the fact that personalities as first ladies, ministers and certain categories of officials are not taken through rigorous protocol and security checks at the villa post.

“What may even surprise you is that Amina, whose phone number is registered with the name Amina Villa, had on the said date, invited one Dr. Alexander Chika Okafor, also known as Chikason; into the Villa wherein she made him believe the invitation was at the instance of the First Lady.”

The DSS spokesperson further said, “Investigation has revealed that the First Lady was away on lesser hajj and not in the Villa during the period.  Dr. Okafor had complained that he was fleeced of over N150m in respect of a Court of Appeal property in Lagos which Amina had promised to help him buy through the First Lady.

“The property was said to have been part of those under the Presidential implementation committee on lease of Federal Government property.”

According to him, investigations have so far revealed that “this unholy enterprise” is not to the knowledge of the First Lady.

He explained that what the suspect simply did was use the First Lady’s name and office to lure and defraud her victims.

The service advised members of the public to be wary of individuals or groups who dropped names and offices of high government officials to defraud them.

Earlier, a mild drama occurred when the suspect tried to disrupt proceedings by shouting “it’s not true” to charges levelled against her.

She said, “It’s (allegation) not true. Chikason has been buying property from the Federal Government and he has been doing it and you all know all the directors that are involved.

“Chikason knows the process; entering the Villa is not done by fraud, Mariatu, the First Lady’s sister is involved; a former SGF (names withheld) is involved.

“I cannot be put to shame before the whole world. I have been here for four months, I came here on my own, I am not a fraudster, I am a citizen of this country.”

However, spokesman for the DSS denied claims by the suspect that she had been kept against her will for four months.

He said, “She has not been detained for four months, we invited her and she honoured our invitations.”
