Southwest NANS Knocks Aisha Buhari Over Illegal Arrest of Student 

The National Association of Nigerian students (NANS) Southwest chapter has attacked the first lady, Aisha Buhari over the arrest of Aminu Muhammed, declaring the act unconstitutional. 

Aminu Muhammed, during the eight month industrial action, tweeted that the first lady was feeding fat from taxpayer money. This did not go down well with the first lady. As reported on Monday, she ordered the arrest of Aminu Muhammed, a student of the Federal University of Dutse, Jigawa State, studying Computer Science. 

NANS Southwest in a statement released by Giwa Temitope disagreed with the NANS, the national body, for apologising to Aisha Buhari. The body stated that Muhammed’s right was violated. 

“The conduct of Aisha and the security officers involved in the brutality meted out to Mohammed is highly condemnable and shows that Aisha does not tolerate dissent. In a democratic dispensation, one would have expected the wife of the President to have instituted a case against the student (if at all there is any) rather than resort to violence.

“In so far it has been established that the student was ‘abducted’ by the police and then ferried to the Presidential Villa where he was tortured on the order of Aisha and then locked up at a police facility at Wuse II, the wife of the President and everyone involved have erred and violated his (Mohammed’s) right to dignity of human persons as guaranteed under Section 34 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (as amended).

“Our position as an association is that the wife of the President has exhibited conduct against the provisions of the Nigerian law which has therefore invalidated whatever case they might have against him,” Temitope said.
