The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), South-West zone, has threatened to embark on a peaceful protest if the detained student, Aminu Adamu Mohammed is not released.

In a statement jointly signed by the zonal coordinator of NANS South-West Zone D, Adegboye Emmanuel Olatunji and the Chairman of NANS in Ogun State, Simeon Damilola Kehinde, the students threatened to block major roads across the South-West in protest if Mrs Aisha Buhari, fails to order the release of Mohammed.

DAILY POST reports that Mohammed, a 500-level student of Federal University, Dutse, Jigawa State, had been charged to court and remanded at Suleja Correctional centre, Niger State, for tweeting that the first lady was feeding fat on poor people’s money.

The body while condemning the continuous detention of Aminu, described the act as a violation of his fundamental human rights, adding that the alleged brutality, harassment and humiliation of Mohammed by the police, who are said to have acted on the order of the first lady was an abuse of power.

The statement called for the unconditional release of Mohammed within the next 24 hours failure of which the first lady will incur the wrath of Nigerian students from the South-West region, adding that it would mobilise the entire student community in the South-West for a massive protest if Mohammed is not released in the next 24 hours.
