Justice Halilu Yusuf of the Federal Capital Territory High Court has remanded one Aminu Adamu, a student of the Federal University, Dutse Jigawa, at the Suleja Correctional Centre in Niger State after tweeting about the wife of the President, Mrs Aisha Buhari.
The student was arraigned for cyber stalking, where he was denied bail despite pleading not guilty to the charges filed against him.
Mohammed, a 500-level student who was allegedly arrested by security officials on the orders of Mrs Buhari a few days ago, had in June tweeted in Hausa that the President’s wife was feeding fat on poor people’s money.
Justice Halilu ordered the defendant to be remanded in Suleja Prison pending the hearing and determination of his bail application.
The charges against the defendant partly read, “That you Aminu Adamu, male of Anguwar Sarakuna, Bauch, Bauchi state sometime between May – June 2022 within the jurisdiction of this Honorable court did intentionally open a Twitter Handle with the name @aminullahie and wrote on it in Hausa language ‘Su mama anchi kudi talakawa ankoshi’ roughly translated to the English language to mean ‘mama has embezzled monies meant for the poor to satisfaction’ and posted same on your above Twitter handle for the members of the public to read, knowing same to be false and capable of affecting her reputation. You thereby committed an offence punishable under Section 391 of the penal code.”
