Court remands student, Aminu Muhammad who said Aisha Buhari ‘ate poor people’s money’
Aminu Muhammad, a student of Federal University Dutse (FUD), has been remanded in prison over his controversial tweet on Aisha Buhari.
Muhammad, who hails from Azare in Bauchi state, is a final-year student at the department of environmental management.
TSB NEWS had reported that the student was arrested by the police over a tweet that appeared to mock Aisha.
The tweet, which was posted in Hausa in June 2022, reads: “Su mama anchi kudin talkawa ankoshi.”
Aminu’s tweet, accompanied by a photo of Aisha, loosely translates as “Mama has eaten poor people’s money and is now full”.
According to BBC Hausa, C.K. Agu, Muhammad’s lawyer, said he was remanded at a hearing on Tuesday at a court in the federal capital territory (FCT), pending another sitting on his bail application.
“He is currently being held in Suleja prison before the bail application is heard,” the lawyer was quoted as saying.
