The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has apologized to the first lady and wife of President Buhari, Aisha Buhari, for the comment made by one Aminu Mohammed, a student of the Federal University, Dutse Jigawa, that allegedly forced her to order his arrest.

Mrs Buhari allegedly ordered his arrest over a Twitter post where he claimed that the First Lady was feeding fat on poor people’s money, opened up on his alleged travail.

The Nation reports that in a statement released by its President, Usman Barambu, NANS apologized on behalf of the Nigerian students to the First Lady, while also calling for Mohammed’s release.

“The leadership of NANS received with concern the news of the unlawful arrest of Mohammed by the Nigeria Police on the instruction of Aisha Buhari. Upon receiving the news, I, Mohammed’s family and friends swung into action to trace the whereabouts of Mohammed. After some days of searching, we got the information that he was at the police unit in Wuse Zone 2. I met with Mohammed at the police custody.

It was alleged that Mohammed some weeks back posted Aisha Buhari’s picture on Twitter with the caption “Su mama anchi kudin talakawa an koshi” (translated from Hausa to ‘the mother has gotten fatter by eating masses’ money’).

Just like the normal way angry citizens have different ways of expression on the social media. On November 18, 2022, the police from Abuja tracked Mohammed to the Federal University Dutse and picked him without any written/verbal invitation or informing the school management or his family,” Barambu narrated.
