Aisha Buhari, wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, has withdrawn the case against Aminu Muhammad, a student of Federal University Dutse (FUD).
Muhammad, who hails from Azare in Bauchi state, is a final-year student at the department of environmental management.
TheCable had reported that the student was arrested by the police over a tweet that appeared to mock Aisha.
The tweet, which was posted in Hausa in June 2022, 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”.
Muhammad was arraigned on a one-count charge by the police before a federal capital territory high court on November 30.
After taking his plea, the defendant was remanded in prison custody. (TheCable)
