Says building belongs to him, not Kiki
The owner of the Wuse 2, Abuja property housing GLAM’D Africa, the beauty outfit of Kiki, the daughter of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, has confirmed that the building belongs to him.
Dr Ayuba Musa, in a statement issued in Abuja, said the property was never at any point sold to the Vice President’s daughter or to anyone.
Musa’s reaction was sequel to a social media post by a blogger, describing Kiki as the owner of the property.
Kiki herself had taken to the Instagram on Friday to dismiss the report as false, saying that she is only a tenant in the building where she runs a beauty business.
She described the social media report as unbelievable, wondering how a grown man who possibly has children her age would sit in his home and lie about her.
She said: “Like many young women in Nigeria, I work hard. It may be difficult for people like him to understand that a young woman can work hard and succeed on her own steam.
“Anyone can verify the ownership of the property of Glamd Africa at AGIS in Abuja. I am a tenant in the property. My landlord’s name is Musa Adams.”
Corroborating Kiki’s claim, Musa said that he remained the rightful owner of the property, adding that all documents on the house were still carrying his name and challenged anyone in doubt to check with the FCT authorities.
He said: “In reaction to the recent reports on social media with regards to the above mentioned property, I write to declare that I, Dr Ayuba Z. Musa, am the rightful owner of the said property located at No. 40 Durban Street, Wuse 2, Abuja.
“I have all my documents which are duly registered with the Abuja Geographic Information Systems (AGIS).
“I have never at any point sold or have agreed to sell my property to GLAM’D Africa, Miss Osinbajo or to any other person. This is completely false.”
According to him, Osinbajo’s daughter is his tenant and has been since April 12, 2017, adding that the tenancy was recently renewed for an additional period of one year.
The Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo himself had earlier written a petition to the Inspector General of Police, Mr. Mohammed Adamu, against the same blogger who had earlier accused him of corruption.
The blogger had claimed that the suspended and detained Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Mr. Ibrahim Magu, gave the VP a bribe of N4 billion from the N39 billion Magu allegedly embezzled from the anti-corruption agency.
Osinbajo, through his lawyers, Bayo Osipitan and Co., asked the police to investigate the allegations made by the blogger, and if they prove to be false, criminal proceedings should be instituted against him pursuant to the provisions of Sections 391-395 of the Penal Code for Criminal Defamation against the blogger.
