Abuja - President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered Nigeria’s security agents to arrest the younger brother of his wife for allegedly extorting money from an unnamed businessman,reports Sahara Reporters.

Buhari has ordered that Yola be brought before him in handcuffs in the company of the businessman he duped.

A visibly angry Buhari was reported to have slammed the businessman for parting with such significant cash when he has already made his stand known that he would not participate in any fraudulent transaction.

The President has also mandated the State Security Services (SSS) operatives attached to Aso Rock Villa to ensure that the businessman recovered his money from his brother-in-law.
