According to a recent report, the State Security Service arrested a Federal University of Dutse student for a five-month-old tweet that was considered disrespectful to Nigerian First Lady Aisha Buhari.
According to the Peoples Gazette, Aminu Adamu Muhammed, a final-year Environmental Management and Toxicology student at FUD in Jigawa State, tweeted in June that Mrs. Buhari had suddenly gained a lot of weight after participating in the nation’s meager resources theft.
Mr Muhammed tweeted this on June 8, 2022, where he lambasted the first lady, Ms Buhari in Hausa:“Su mama anchi kudin talkawa ankoshi”, which is translated as “the mother has gotten fatter by eating masses’ money.”
According to the story, Mr. Muhammad’s pals have admitted on social media that he posted the message because he was upset about the country’s prolonged university strike at the time. The ASUU strike, which started on February 14, 2022, ended on October 14 .
A family source claims that the 23-year-old student was apprehended by police on the Federal University Dutse, Jigawa campus on November 8. After being taken into custody at around midday, the officers allegedly beat the man severely.
He was subsequently sent to Abuja and given a limited period of time to speak to his father Adamu Shalele Azare about where he was, which the family mistook for a police station. Later, it was revealed to Peoples Gazette that Mr. Muhammad’s arrest had been orchestrated by the State Security Service.
