SSS arrests Twitter user for saying Aisha Buhari’s size exploded after eating Nigerians’ money

The State Security Service has locked up a student of Federal University Dutse over a social media post deemed defamatory against Nigeria First Lady Aisha Buhari. 

It was gathered that Aminu Adamu Muhammed had in June posted on Twitter that Mrs Buhari had suddenly added massive weight after taking part in plundering the nation’s meagre resources as the masses endured hardship under her husband’s brutal regime. 

In the June 8, 2022, tweet, Mr Muhammed chastised Ms Buhari in Hausa: “Su mama anchi kudin talkawa ankoshi”, which could be translated as “the mother has gotten fatter by eating masses’ money.” Mr Muhammed’s friends said he made the post because he was frustrated about the prolonged strike by universities across the country. The, which started in early 2022, ended last month after nine months.

A family source said Mr Muhammed, 23, was picked up by officers on November 8 on the campus ground of Federal University Dutse, Jigawa. The student was allegedly  subjected to severe beating by the officers following his arrest at about 12:00 noon. 

He was summarily transferred to Abuja and was briefly allowed to contact his father Adamu Shalele Azare about his location, which the family thought was a police station.

It was reported that State Security Service was behind Mr Muhammad’s arrest. 

It was not immediately clear if the family has been able to contract a lawyer over the matter. A spokesman for the SSS did not immediately return a request seeking comments from newsmen on Saturday afternoon. School authorities, including the environmental technology department where Mr Muhammed studies, declined comments.
