September 20, 2016 – Yaradua’s Wife Orders Police To Arrest 70-Year-Old Domestic Servant Over Missing Rice, Family Begs Buhari For Help

Former First Lady, Hajiya Turai Yar’Adua, wife of the late President Umaru Yar’Adua, has handed over to the police her 70-year-old domestic servant, Malam Yusuf Jikwando and his two sons, over missing foodstuffs and an undisclosed amount of money.

Jikwando, who is the longest serving domestic servant to the Yar’Adua family, was allegedly arrested two days before Eid-el Kabir in his house at Samji Quarters in Katsina. It was learnt that the arrest followed Turai’s directive to the state Commissioner of Police, Abdullahi Mohammed.

A man close to the family said that five well-armed policemen invaded Jikwando’s house and searched the entire house, but only found three measures of rice and a quarter bag of maize. According to him, Jikwando’s eldest son and second to the last born were later arrested.

He said while Jikwando’s family members and relatives tried to go and see the former first lady in Abuja over the arrests, five people, among them the man’s wife, had an accident near Kankara village. According to him, the victims sustained serious injuries.

Sources said Jikwando served the Yar’Adua family for over 40 years and was never found wanting by the late President. According to one of Jikwando’s sons, the family hardly eats three square meals a day despite their father’s closeness to the Yar’Adua family. He said their father celebrated the Eid-el Kabir in Katsina prison without being taken to court. The son said Turai was not specific in her complaint against his father.

The Jikwando family members appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari, Governor Bello Masari of Katsina State and the Human Rights Commission to come to their aid. According to them, injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.

  1. Please madam Yaradua don’t let this man die in this condition, so that you don’t put a generational curse on your family. Please loose him and let him go. I’m not saying he took those items that were missing and I’m not saying he did not. But I a see you are planting that would start manifest after you no longer alive.

  2. I hate reading such news and now am angry with myself for going against my wish .
    I hate intimidation, manipulation and slavery.
    He’s 70, and served you guys for 40 & and you turned against him now ?
    Seriously?
    Even if he did, why involve the police ? And the said items were not found at his house. What else do you want ?

    He gave you guys his youth and stamina and never stole anything till now?
    C’mon bitch take your frustration somewhere else and let him be you modern day Jezebel.
    He slaved away his youth for you guys and hardy feed and you’re not ashamed of yourself ?

    I wish I know how to handle this case or anyone that can help him. To make matters worst, His family members are in the hospital because of this shit.
    You’re right Tolu. Oh please let the outcome of this action be on her alone.
    I’ll not be surprised to hear he caught your giving birth to evil so you made this up just to shake him.
    NONSENSE!
    STEALING INDEED.

  4. Wicked Woman, why are you so evil? This man served your family for forty years and you can still do this to him, oh please this is bizarre. You have no conscience at all, Ok agreed that he stole those items you claimed that he stole, why can’t you let go and leave him for God. After all, that is nothing to compare with Nigerian money that you and your husband stole. YOU ARE JUST BEIGN WICKED.

  5. If she’s worth more than that, why not free the man? Or not until the man die? Madam, even if you are right, what the man might have stolen from you, is minuts to what you have acquired in life. For the mere fact that you can feed a nation let the poor man be. I beg u Oga Madam.

  6. Nigerians with their jungle justice, who among you guys has heard and confirmed this or even heard her own side of the story before calling her names. This is social media and a lot are flying around and my advice is that we confirm stories before laying curses that might backfire

  7. I know u arrest the man because u don’t want such incident to repeat it self, but u are very heartless as a Muslim to leave the man there to celebrate SALAH in the prison..Very soon u will die like your husband and leave all you are fighting for.. Fool

  8. Womens are wicked. All the womans weyra fulling for this world is wicked. Is why I never marry today. Even me can not posibul to do persin bad thing. I be good man o. I good pass away pastor sef. Is bicos I be rastaman and Babylon must fall. Turai Yaradua na Babylon to this man. She is do like King Nebukadnava weyris think say he is power for the hole world until one Friday wey he just run enter bush to be choping grass up and down for seven years ago.

  9. @ Gerald Stephen, you are right. There are at least two opposing sides to every story so we should have the benefit of hearing both sides before commenting.
    However, when people close to you offend, wisdom is needed in handling the annoyance since close people are like bleeding mouth wound ; you cannot easily spit it out and you cannot easily swallow it.
    The matter is a family matter and should be handled as such.

  10. wicked woman,man dat has bn working wt ur husband family b4 ur arrival u just come from no wia and asaulted him dia is God ooo
    ..

  11. @Gerald stephen. From what you’ve read here so far,will you push aside all what has been reported here as untrue?Do you want to tell us that whatever information that is aired online is fake?

    Now,am not saying the story here is 100% correct. But if it is not correct to some degree,do you think the accused’s family member would have been bold enough to appealed to president Muhammadu Buhari,governor bello masari of kastina state and human rights commission in nigeria to come to their aid?

    Base on what we’ve been told here,nothing has confirmed that the man and his children were responsible for such theft.

    Now let’s even accept they were responsible for the missing food stuff and the money,the point the commentators above are stressing here is,the woman of such dignity,honor,caliber would have at least tamper justice with mercy in this case involving the aged man that is the longest serving domestic servant of yaradua’s family putting in 4 decades of service and his two children that was latter arrested.

    Even though she has the right to punish them if what they’ve been accused of turn out to be true,still why not have mercy on them?

    So rather than given such excuses of untrue stories of social media,let’s always speak up against oppression,cruelty,repression injustice by the rich and powerful against the poor ones and the less privileged in the society.

  12. You and your family stole millions from Nigerians just because your husband held public office for less than half the duration this man served you. You actually felt it was your entitlement. EFCC please take note of one of the ‘goats’ that ate our yams. Left over yams can go back into TSA.

  13. Madam Turai, common! this old man has wasted better part of his life for serving you and your family. This guy joined your family when he was 30 years old, he even had his two sons while serving you. According to the above report, the guy has never stolen kobo from you. Stealing a bag of rice is normal act by all house-help and domestic workers. The man two sons might have caused this incidence but instead of forgetting him behind prison bar especially on a sallah day, you should have just let him it go without giving him any benefits.

    Madam Turai, I think there is more to this story than to meet the eyes. It is very rare among Hausas dragging issues like this to the extreme level not just anybody but with a chef who has lived longer with them as part of family. Aside the above story, I never taught Turai can be so bitter like this just for a bag of rice and some few Naira. This is how some Nigerians felt when you and your family were stealing from their treasury.

  14. Sometimes some post aren’t worth the comment. Some research has to be carried out before posting comments…. I heard that the so-called elderly grandpa stole a whooping N91m from Mrs. Yar’adua a reason that resulted in the arrest of the elderly man.
    You can both agree with me that this woman in her right sense wouldn’t have by any means ordered police to arrest this man prior to sallah all because of mere food stuffs. It’s definitely not possible. If such was the case she would have tempered justice with mercy. But as it stands I believe there is something that hurt her the most and the only way of resolving this since she can’t make the man return what belongs to her was to arrest him.

    Now that both the writer and some people seems making this complicated I wonder what else the writer will accuse this woman of next. Why not advice the man to return atleast N70m back to the woman. There is no how that woman won’t forgive this elderly man if he returns the cash. We don’t have to support wrong things in the name of defending an old man. The truth must prevail let’s wait and get the main reasons for Madam’s action from public newscaster before we crucify her  cos there’s no single proof in this post that Madam locked this man up because of mere food stuffs.

    Well, Mrs. Yar’adua I beg you in the name of Allah, whatever the case might be, please temper justice with mercy.. If this man is guilty of all the accusations and eventually returns all or part of what belongs to you, please find a place in your heart to forgive him n forget if possible. Just forgive and let him go freely. Sorry and quick recovery to the Elderly man’s family members that had an accident. It’s well with you all.

    I have always refused to comment on some post Nomatter how many I read per day, because some critics just ride in here to post  bullshits in d name of comments. I do my DD well before returning to comment and that’s why when I vouch out my anger, I never think of a second option.

    @ Bench don’t worry I will get you more Igbo to keep ur brain titilititi… Nawa o.. Lol.

    It’s well with everyone … It’s well with naija…

    And So… Let’s Keep Kool… While…
