The Jigawa State Police Command has reacted to news of the arrest of Aminu Muhammad, a 500l student of the Federal University, Dutse over a tweet he made concerning the First Lady, Aisha Buhari.
Aminu had made a tweet apparently mocking the stature of Mrs Aisha Buhari.
The tweet which was written in Hausa and accompanied by a photo of the first lady, read in English, “Mama has eaten poor people’s money and is now full.
Muhammed was reportedly arrested by the Department of State Service (DSS) and this has generated a lot of backlash from Nigerians.
However, When Punch reached out to the Police Public Relations Officer of the command, DSP Lawan Shiisu he said he was not aware.
“We didn’t make the arrest. An arrest cannot be made in my area without me being informed,” he said.
