Scores of Nigerians have returned to Twitter to express their regret for calling out First Lady Aisha Buhari over the arrest, assault and detention of a student of the Federal University, Dutse, Jigawa State, Aminu Adamu Muhammed.
Naija News reports that the 23-year-old student had used the microblogging platform to accuse the Nigerian President’s wife of feeding fat on poor people’s money.
Aminu was arrested on November 8 by security operatives, allegedly led by Usman Shugaga, Aide-De-Camp to Aisha Buhari.
Nigerians have since knocked the First Lady for using her ‘powers’ to ‘oppress’ the young man.
However, some of the critics of Aisha Buhari have returned online to apologize to the First Lady after a post made by Aminu during an unfortunate incident in Sokoto State, where a Christian lady, Deborah Samuel, was killed by her schoolmates.
Naija News recalls that Samuel was beaten and burnt to death over alleged blasphemy against Islam’s prophet Muhammad.
A check on Aminu’s Twitter handle [Catalyst – @aminullahie] showed his previous post which reads: “Duk Wanda yasa wannan rigar ah Bauchi sai munchi uwarsa.”
The post written in Hausa language simply means: “Whosoever wears this shirt in Bauchi will be dealt with him severely.”
The said shirt Aminu was referring to carries an image of the late Deborah Samuel.

Reacting to the viral post, renowned investigative journalist, David Hundeyin wrote: “I earnestly apologize for retweeting the appeal to free this fellow. May he remain inside that cell for as long as Deborah’s family is denied justice, plus some extra time for accrued interest.
“Allah ya kara masa nauyin kasa.”

1. Those who rush to defend an infinite God by murdering humans on his behalf are the greatest blasphemers.
2. If you put your energies into supporting evil, one day, that evil will pay you a visit.
