Student arrested for saying Aisha Buhari ‘ate poor people’s money’ had threatened those who mourned Deborah Samuel; Nigerians react
It’s been discovered that Aminu Adamu Mohammed, the undergraduate student of Federal University, Dutse, who made a derogatory tweet about First Lady, Aisha Buhari, had threatened to deal with those who mourned Deborah Samuel Yakubu months ago.
Recall that Deborah, a 21-year-old student of Shehu Shagari College of Education, Sokoto, was stoned to death and set ablaze by her fellow students over alleged blasphemy in May 2022.
At the time, Aminu posted a photo of a T-shirt with Deborah’s face and the inscription, “Murdered For Peace”, and threatened to harm anyone who wears it in Bauchi State.
He wrote in the caption, “Duk Wanda yasa wannan rigar ah Bauchi sai munchi uwarsa” which translates to “whosoever wears this shirt in bauchi will be dealt with….. SEVERELY!!!”
Following Aminu’s arrest for saying Aisha Buhari is feeding fat on poor people’s money, social media investigators have dug up his old tweet about Deborah Samuel.
The tweet has since sparked outrage among Nigerians and many who initially called for his release have dissociated from him, saying it’s his karma.
They asserted that he deserves the punishment he’s currently receiving and should be made to face the full wrath of the law.
