The National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, has announced a national demonstration in support of Aminu Mohammed, a student at the Federal University of Dutse in Jigawa who was arrested after criticising First Lady Aisha Buhari on Twitter.
The president of NANS, Usman Barambu, announced preparations for a large demonstration across the nation on Monday, December 5, 2022, to underline the students’ demand in a statement made on Thursday.
The NANS president also demanded the unconditional release of the Federal University Dutse student.
Barambu condemned Mohammed’s incarceration for reportedly writing a nasty tweet against the president’s wife, Mrs. Aisha Buhari.
Barambu made it clear that the demonstration would continue until Aisha, Buhari, and the IGP, Usman Baba, release the student.
Recall Justice Halilu Yusuf of the Federal Capital Territory High Court remanded Muhammed to the Suleja Correctional Center in Niger State for cyberstalking.
