Aminu Mohammed Released from Prison, as Aisha Buhari bows to Pressure, withdraws case against student

The detained critic of Nigeria’s First Lady Aisha Buhari, Aminu Mohammed Adamu, has been released from Prison unconditionally according to reports.

Aminu, a student of the Federal University, Dutse, Jigawa State, is expected to meet Mrs Buhari’s husband, President Muhammadu Buhari before reuniting with his family.

The First Lady of Nigeria, Aisha Buhari, has also withdrawn the case against Aminu Adamu Mohammed.

The prosecution counsel, Fidelis Ogbobe, on Friday, said following the intervention of well-meaning Nigerians, the First Lady, as the mother of the nation, decided to withdraw the case.

Ogbode relied on Section 108 subsection 2(a) of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act to move the application for the withdrawal of the case.

Justice Halilu Yusuf of the FCT High Court, ruling on the matter, commended the First Lady for taking the “bold steps” to forgive the accused.

While issuing the release warrant of Aminu, justice Halilu called on parents to monitor their children to avoid recurrence.

Aminu, who was reportedly subjected to torture and other ill-treatment, had faced charges of defamation of the character of Nigeria’s first lady.

The student was remanded at Niger State Correctional centre in Suleja for tweeting that the First Lady was feeding fat on the poor people’s money.
