Buhari’s wife withdraws suit against student


President Muhammadu Buhari’s wife, A’isha has withdrawn the case against Aminu Muhammad, a student of Federal University Dutse (FUD), a final-year student of the department of environmental management.
Mohammad was arrested by the police over a tweet which alleged that the President’s wife has eaten poor people’s money and is now full.
The tweet, which was written in Hausa language in June 2022, and was posted with an accompanying photo of the first lady, reads: “Su mama anchi kudin talkawa ankoshi.”
Meaning- “Mama has eaten poor people’s money and is now full”.
Muhammad was arraigned on a one-count charge by the police before a federal capital territory (FCT) high court on November 30.
After taking his plea, the defendant was remanded in prison custody.
At the court session on Friday, Fidelis Ogbobe, prosecution counsel, told the court that the first lady decided to withdraw the case following the intervention of well-meaning Nigerians.
Citing section 108(2)(a) of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act, Ogbobe also moved an application for the withdrawal of the case.
Delivering his ruling, Yusuf Halilu, the presiding judge, commended the first lady for taking the “bold step” to withdraw the case.
While issuing the defendant’s release warrant, the judge urged parents to endeavour to always be aware of their children’s activities.
