The Nigerian First Lady, Mrs. Aisha Buhari, has come under fire from comedian and actor Mr. Macaroni for the arrest of a student named Aminu Muhammed.
Aminu Mohammed, a final-year student at Federal University Dutse in Jigawa, was reportedly detained by agents of the Department of State Services of Nigeria on the grounds that his tweet from June 2nd was defamatory of the First Lady.
In his tweet, Muhammad claimed that the First Lady had gained weight unexpectedly after participating in the squandering of the country’s resources while the people suffered under her husband’s rule.
He Tweeted in Hausa: in Hausa: “Su mama anchi kudin talkawa Muhammed ankoshi”, which could be translated as “the mother has got fatter by eating masses’ money.”
According to Muhammed’s friends, his tweets come from being frustrated about the prolonged strike by universities across the country. Recall that the strike embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities ( ASSU) began in February 2022 and ended in October after eight months of noncompliance from the government.
A few days after the arrest of Aminu Muhammed, Skitmaker, Mr Macaroni who also doubles as an activist has taken to his Twitter page to call out the First Lady for using her position to oppress the poor masses.
Mr Macaroni noted that the First Lady is not bigger than the citizens or the law. He further said the former president of the country, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan and his wife, Patience suffered much insults from Nigeria but they never arrested anyone.
He Tweeted: Madam First Lady, you are not God!!! If you have any grievance whatsoever, go to court!!! You are not bigger than the Citizens of Nigeria neither are you bigger than the Law!! You should use your power to serve the people not Oppress them!! Free Aminu!!!
