Aisha Yesufu knocks Aisha Buhari over arrest, detention of Twitter user, Aminu, for alleged defamation

Human rights activist, Aisha Yesufu, has flayed Nigeria’s First Lady, Aisha Buhari, for allegedly ordering the arrest and detention of one Aminu Adamu Muhammed over an alleged defamatory social media post, IgbereTV reports

Muhammed, a final-year student in the Department of Environmental Management and Toxicology, Federal Univeristy 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.”

It was gathered that he had tweeted to vent his anger over the protracted strike embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) fueled by the failure of the Federal Government to honour its agreement with the union.

A family source said the 23-year-old Muhammed was picked up by officers on November 8 on the campus ground of Federal University Dutse, Jigawa and was beaten up following his arrest at about 12:00 noon.

Yesufu, who commented on the development, described Muhammed’s arrest as unconstitutional and outrageous
