Wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, Aisha, has withdrawn the suit filed against a student of Federal University Dutse (FUD), Jigawa State, Aminu Muhammad.
Muhammad, who hails from Azare in Bauchi state, is a 500-level student at the Department of Environmental Management.
The student was arrested by the police over a tweet that appeared to mock Aisha.
The tweet, which was posted in Hausa in June 2022, reads: “Su mama anchi kudin talkawa ankoshi.”
Muhammad’s tweet, accompanied by a photo of Aisha, loosely translates as “Mama has eaten poor people’s money and is now full”.
Muhammad was arraigned on a one-count charge by the police before a Federal Capital Territory High Court on November 30.
After taking his plea, the defendant was remanded in prison custody.
