Despite the first lady’s denial and legal threat, Gov. Fayose had insisted that President Buhari’s wife was the Aisha Buhari named in a United States’ court document in the Halliburton bribery case that led to the conviction of former U.S. lawmaker, Williams Jefferson.

However, the mother-of-five and one grandchild has made good her legal threat.

Premium Times reports that in an ex-parte motion, filed July 20, 2016, Mrs. Buhari prayed the Federal High Court, Abuja Division, to grant her reliefs to issue writ of summons against Mr. Fayose and his media advisers, Idowu Adelusi and Lere Olayinka.

The online newspaper reported that Olukayode Adeniyi, the presiding judge, granted all reliefs Mrs. Buhari’s sought, including an order of substituted service.

It said Mary Ekpere, counsel to Mrs. Buhari, prayed the court for the lawsuit to be served on Mr. Fayose and his two aides, even though Ekiti State is outside the jurisdiction of the Abuja Division of the FHC.
