After spending several days at the police custody, Aminu Muhammad, a final-year student of Federal University, Dutse has been released yesterday.
It is informative to know that Aminu was arrested by the police at his varsity on November 18 over a tweet that appeared to mock Mrs. Aisha Buhari.
His arrest elicited mixed reactions with the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) apologising to Mrs. Buhari over the tweet.
The tweet, which was posted on June 8, reads: “Su mama anchi kudin talkawa ankoshi.”
Muhammad’s tweet, accompanied by a photo of Aisha, loosely translates as “Mama has eaten poor people’s money and is now full”.
He had been arraigned before Justice Yusuf Halilu of the Federal Capital Territory High Court in Maitama, where he pleaded not guilty and was remanded at Suleja prison in Niger State.
