A student of Federal University in Dutse, Aminu Adamu arrested for criticising the first lady, Aisha Buhari has been released.
We gathered that the 400-level student was released from detention on Friday evening.
Recall that security operatives trailed and apprehended Aminu on the 18th of November following his post on Twitter accusing Buhari’s wife of spending the country’s funds.
Aminu upon his arrest was eventually arraigned before a High Court in Abuja on the 30th of November.
The development stirred reaction online as Nigerians called for the unconditional release of the final-year student.
Aisha amid the outrage on Friday withdrew the suit filed against Aminu on Friday.
The prosecution counsel, Fidelis Ogbobe on Friday said the First Lady had decided to withdraw the case due to the intervention of well-meaning Nigerians.
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 while ruling on the matter, praised Aisha for her bold step to forgive the accused.
The judge, while issuing the release warrant of Aminu called on parents to monitor their children to avoid the recurrence of the situation.
