Aisha Buhari to Appear in Court
It has been heard that Aisha Buhari, the president's wife, will testify against Aminu Mohammed, a student at the Federal University of Dutse Jigawa, who criticized her on Twitter.
After being charged with cyberstalking and libel against the First Lady at the FCT High Court No. 14 in Abuja on Tuesday, the aforementioned student was remanded in custody.
Mohammed, while entering a not-guilty plea, was nonetheless detained at the Suleja Correctional Facility without the chance to post bail.
The 24-year-old, who is from Bauchi State, was purportedly detained a few days ago on the First Lady's orders, which infuriated Nigerians and led to many of them appealing for his release.
Back in June, he had tweeted in Hausa that the First Lady was becoming fat off the money of the underprivileged.
Su mama Anchi Kudin Talakawa a koshi, which translates to "Mama has fed fat on poor people's money," was the tweet's first line.
The 500-level student was allegedly brutalized, beaten, mistreated, and humiliated by police officers who were thought to be men from the Department of State Services after they picked him up from his school two weeks ago and took him immediately to the Presidential Villa.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
