Aisha Buhari: We Will Not Stop Till You Set Aminu Mohammed Free – NANS Announces Nationwide Protest
The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has announced a nationwide protest to demand the relaesse of a student of the Federal University, Dutse, Jigawa State, Aminu Mohammed.
Naija News recalls that the student was arrested and sent to prison over a tweet on Aisha Buhari, wife of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Mohammed had written that the first lady had gotten fat from feeding off the proceeds of the economy.
NANS President, Usman Barambu, in a statement obtained by Naija News on Thursday, stated that the protest, which would commence on Monday, would be indefinite until Mohammed regained freedom.
Barambu noted that NANS’ protest would be against the First Lady and the Inspector General of Police, Usman Baba.
“Sequel to the exhaustion of all options available to us before confrontation in seeking the freedom of one of us who was arrested in questionable manner, tortured, molested, harassed and detained by agents of government, you are hereby notified of the decision of the leadership of NANS to proceed on a nationwide protest.
We have consulted and consolidated which yielded no desirable results in seeking the freedom of Mohammed, hence, the protest shall commence as follows: Monday, December 5, 2022 nationwide.
“Please note that our demonstration shall continue until he is released unconditionally,” the statement said.
