Aminu Adamu: Aisha Buhari deactivates Twitter account, injury worsens


First Lady Aisha Buhari has deactivated her Twitter account amid outrage over the arrest of Aminu Adamu.


The student of the Federal University, Dutse, Jigawa State, was taken from the campus on November 8.


The 23-year-old is being detained without trial for his Twitter post on the President’s wife.


“Su mama anchi kudin talkawa ankoshi” (The mother has got fatter by eating masses’ money), he tweeted in June.


The undergraduate made the comment four months into the eight-month strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).


Nigerians continue to drag Aisha, the Police and the Department of State Services (DSS) over Aminu’s fate.


Their anger grew after the revelation that her Aide-De-Camp, Usman Shugaba, allegedly coordinated the youth’s arrest and torture.


Daily Nigerian reported that Aisha allegedly supervised the beating of Aminu and Zainab Kassim (her former social media aide).


Meanwhile, the injury the First Lady suffered when she allegedly attempted to throw a kick at either of the duo has worsened.


She was taken to Cedarcrest Hospital last week for medical attention after her leg and hand were fractured after a slip.


The whereabouts of Aminu and Zainab remain unknown as citizens demand information on their well-being. Some have threatened legal action.
