Muhammed, had in June tweeted in Hausa “Su mama anchi kudin talkawa ankoshi” loosely translated as “the mother has gotten fatter by eating masses’ money.”

Aminu’s tweet it was gathered was to ventilate against the prolonged strike by university lecturers.

Sources said that Aminu was picked up by operatives of the Department of State Services on November 8 on campus and was reportedly beaten up following his arrest at about 12:00 noon.

Responding to the arrest, Aisha Yesufu tweeted thus:

Who is Aisha Buhari that an aggrieved citizen cannot talk about? Those of you talking about her so called powers need to ask yourselves whether you are citizens or slaves.

While several Nigerians took to support her with an assertion that the First Lady may have overstepped her bounds, several supporters subsequently came forward to back the arrest of the student.

I don’t know how defamation has become freedom of speech, it’s a choice if you decide not to take action against anyone who defamed you. She acted within her right as a free citizen by reporting to police, while the school had already assisted the poor boy with an attorney.

Go to court it’s your right.

Akawu M.E @DivineDr1 @denverind

Can you even listen to yourself? If it’s defamation as you said, sending the DSS to arrest him is a breech of the law. The court should give that order but we are in a lawless country.

Is defamation a duty of police, police and military? Why didn’t she did him for defamation? The poor citizen supporting the oppression of another poor citizen.

Aisha Buhari is someone’s mother like you and no mother deserve such disrespect from anyone. We hope DSS will just flock him very well and release him back to school.

Aisha Buhari is president’s wife. The aggrieved citizen can talk about her. They can even chat with their friends about her. However, the talk shouldn’t pass the ambit of the law. Whoever transverses the law, it will teach them a lesson.

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has warned cabals reportedly trying to scuttle the February 25 and March 11 general elections to desist from the plot, saying no to any form of ‘interim government’.

“Let nobody try to scuttle this election,” the governor warned on Saturday during a campaign in the Opobo/Nkoro Local Government Area of the state.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain, also berated the Federal Government over the scarcity of the newly redesigned naira notes, saying he believes that President Muhammadu Buhari was misled to approve the policy.

“This policy (naira redesign) is targeted at making people angry so that they will demonstrate and riot and then the election be postponed. Then, they will introduce an interim government,” he said.

“No matter the provocation, don’t protest,” Wike cautioned the people of the state. “This election will hold. This election is by the PVCs. This election is not an election of cabals; it is an election of Nigerians.”

Interim Government first popped up in Nigeria’s history about three decades ago when then Head of State, Ibrahim Babangida annulled the June 12, 1993 presidential election presumably won by the late philanthropist, Moshood Kashimawo Olawale (MKO) Abiola. The late Ernest Shonekan subsequently emerged the head of the Interim National Government between January and August 1993.

‘Enemies Of Nigeria’
The former minister said those supporting the currency redesign amid the electioneering process are the enemies of the country.

He also knocked the Federal Government over the scarcity of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) popularly known as petrol.

“You said you want to remove the old currency but we have not seen the new ones. Can you buy fuel? Can you buy anything to eat again? Now, tell me, would you vote for anybody who loves Nigeria and is running for election, who supports this CBN policy?” he asked party supporters decked up in party paraphernalia, many of whom chorused “No”.

“Those supporting this kind of thing are enemies of Nigeria. I believe that they did not tell President Buhari the correct thing because me and the President are going the same time – May 29, the same time, nobody will stay one day more the other.

The governor, however, said he believes that the President will take steps to assuage the pain of the masses.

“So, I know the man will like to finish well and go and I won’t see what is bad and not advise him. Those plotting all these things are those who don’t like him. But I believe he will hear the cries of Nigerians,” he said.

The PDP stalwart further said the policy of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) is not to fight corruption “What corruption are you fighting when you have three months more?” he queried.
