It has been revealed that the murdered former Chief of Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh, three weeks ago, met with the wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, Aisha, and the Chief of Staff to Mr. President, Abba Kyari
The meeting with the duo, according to Saturday Punch, was over his trial for corruption.
Badeh was shot dead by unknown gunmen on Tuesday along Abuja-Keffi road on his way from his farm. He was in company of his friend who was kidnapped and his driver who is currently receiving treatment for gunshot wound.
Badeh, who was facing trial for alleged fraud, criminal breach of trust and money laundering, allegedly met with Aisha Buhari to seek her intervention in his legal troubles which were reportedly taking an emotional and financial toll on him.
A close associate of the deceased claimed that he confided in him that Mrs Buhari told Badeh that only Kyari could help him.
“Badeh stated that Aisha Buhari then took him to Kyari, but the COS was non-committal. He asked the ex-CDS to call him back, but he (Kyari) was unreachable since the meeting which took place about three weeks ago,” the source, a former paramilitary officer, said.
