Following reports, that, the State Security Service has arrested a student of Federal University Dutse over a social media post deemed defamatory against Nigeria’s First Lady Aisha Buhari – Nigerians take to twitter to apologise to Patience Jonathan, wife of the former President.
It was gathered that Aminu Adamu Muhammed, a final-year student of Environmental Management And Toxicology at FUD, Jigawa State, had in June posted on Twitter that Mrs Buhari had suddenly added massive weight after plundering the nation’s meagre resources.
In the June 8, 2022, tweet, Muhammed chastised the first lady in Hausa language: “Su mama anchi kudin talkawa ankoshi”, which could be translated as “the mother has gotten fatter by eating masses’ money.”
Muhammed’s friends, who have taken to social media, said he made the post because he was frustrated about the prolonged strike by universities across the country. The ASUU strike, which started in early 2022, ended last month after nine months.A family source said officers picked up the 23-year-old student on November 8 at Federal University Dutse, Jigawa. The student was reportedly subjected to severe beating by the officers following his arrest at about noon.He was summarily transferred to Abuja and was briefly allowed to contact his father, Adamu Shalele Azare, about his location, which the family thought was a police station but newsmen were later informed that the State Security Service was behind Mr Muhammad’s arrest.
As a result of muhammeds ‘arest, Nigerians are recalling the era of the former first lady, Patience jonathan, wife of the former Nigerian President, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.
