The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has expressed its grievances towards the detention of Aminu Adamu, a student of Federal University, Dutse, over an alleged derogatory post which was made against Mrs. Aisha Buhari, the wife of the President.
It will be recalled that in November, Aminu Adamu, who is a final year student of the Department of Environmental Management and Taxocology at the Federal University of Dutse, Jigawa, was arrested and detained for an alleged derogatory post on the wife of the President.
This was disclosed in a terse statement issued by the NANS President, Usman Barambu, on Thursday, demanding for the unconditional release of the student.
The NANS President also declared a nationwide protest scheduled for Monday, 5th December, 2022, where the needs of NANS will be communicated to the government and Nigerians at large.
The terse statement read: “Sequel to the exhaustion of all options available to us before confrontation in seeking the freedom of one of us who was arrested in questionable manner, tortured, molested, harassed and detained by agents of government, you are hereby notified of the decision of the leadership of the National Association of Nigerian Students to proceed on a nationwide protest.”
“We have consulted and consolidated and neither yielded desirable results in seeking the freedom of AMINU ADAMU MUHAMMED, student of the Federal University Dutse hence the protest shall commence as follows: Monday 5th December, 2022 Nationwide.”
