Social activist, Aisha Yesufu, has slammed Nigeria’s First Lady, Aisha Buhari, for allegedly ordering the arrest and detention of Aminu Muhammed over an alleged defamatory social media post.

Muhammed, who is a final-year student in the Department of Environmental Management and Toxicology, Federal University Dutse, Jigawa State, had in June tweeted in Hausa “Su mama anchi kudin talkawa ankoshi” loosely translated as “the mother has gotten fatter by eating masses’ money.”

As gathered, Aminu had tweeted to express displeasure over the then-prolonged strike action of the Academic Staff Union of Universities as a result of the failure of the Federal Government to honour its agreement with the union.

It was further gathered that 23-year-old Muhammed was picked up by officers of the Department of State Services on November 8 on campus and was reportedly beaten up following his arrest at about 12:00 noon.

Yesufu, who took to her YouTube channel on Sunday, commented on the development, describing Muhammed’s arrest as unconstitutional and outrageous.
