The National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, has called for a nationwide protest against President Muhammadu Buhari’s wife and First Lady, Aisha Buhari and the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, over the arrest and detention of an undergraduate student.
The Federal University, Dutse, Jigawa State student, Aminu Muhammed was arrested, detained, and remanded in prison for criticizing Aisha Buhari in a Twitter post he had previously posted in June.
Muhammed, a final-year student in the Department of Environmental Management and Toxicology, in June 2022 had posted on Twitter that Mrs. Buhari had suddenly added weight after taking part in plundering/feasting on the nation’s meager resources as the masses endured hardship under her husband’s regime.
However, according to Mohammed’s friends, he had only made that tweet because he had been frustrated by the prolonged strike action of ASUU and the federal government’s inaction towards the debacle.
The wife of the President has been known for her lavish trips to Dubai.
Meanwhile, Usman Barambu, the NANS president announced a nationwide protest on Monday, December 5 against the inhuman action of the First Lady and her police.
