Nigerians on social media have describe the decision of the First Lady, Aisha Buhari to withdraw the case against a final-year student of the Federal University, Dutse, Aminu Adamu over his twitter post as ‘medicine after death’.

Recall that Aminu was two weeks ago, picked up by security operatives and whisked to Abuja over comments on Aisha’s weight.

He was arraigned on Tuesday, November 30, before Justice Yusuf Halilu of the Federal Capital Territory High Court in Maitama, where he pleaded not guilty and was remanded at Suleja Correctional Centre in Niger State.

But withdrawing the case against the accused on Friday, the Prosecution Counsel, Fidelis Ogbobe, said the First Lady as the mother of the nation decided to withdraw it, following the intervention of well-meaning Nigerians.

However, the decision has generated wild reactions from Nigerians as they faulted the First Lady’s initial arrest of Aminu.

@jaybell -The first lady has proven that she can be power if she is in the position of a president.

@anthony -After allowing the poor boy to experience small trauma in detention, the first lady now feels releasing him now make her win our heart is pure lie.

@Jerome -She has not really played the role as the mother of the nation with her treatment of the young man.

@Paul -Sincerely, we live in a society where freedom of speech cant be guaranteed.

@Ladipo -Obviously, Mrs Aisha Buhari has done the damages already and releasing the him is like medicine after death.

@Kjol -The truth is, the APC govt has shown to us that they cant be trusted with powers again.

@Ethel -Nigeriajns have a decision to make between choosing a govt that will choke you and someone that will give you freedom of expression.


@LessonThem As it should be. I can’t [email protected] let themselves be used by the wife of the president. This is a country and not Buhari family house.

@owomano She’s a disgrace to motherhood and should cover her eyes in Shame for the remaining part of this administration

@IgweAfrica1 Fundamental human rights sha Dey work for this country Tueh 😤


@prinnccejosh Tyranny has no place in democracy, but in Nigeria, tyranny and despotism have become our own democracy. Well done, Madam Aisha.

@WisdomUchenna17 You can track an innocent boy but can’t track and wipe herdsmen and boko haram. Ndi ara

@Uto_nwa1 If not the way people raised alarm, they could have left him there to rot in jail.Omo…nothing surprises me in Nigeria anymore, the rich on a steady pressing the poor’s neck. Am sure he already learnt his lessons

‘How Fake Zenith Bank Agent Stole N141,000 From My Account’, Hairstylist Narrates

Published

on

Mary Ajah, a hairstylist in Osun State, has narrated how a fraudster posing as a Zenith Bank representative defrauded her of N141,000.

The hairstylist said the scammer succeeded in his scheme because she was desperate to resolve a problem she had with her current bank account.

She said she chatted with the bank to find out what she could do to receive alerts via text messages and her email address but she was told to reach out to them via their social media handles or email addresses as they were not receiving calls at the time.

According to Ajah, this problem of not receiving notifications from her account had been going on since October, immediately after creating a current bank account.

“I sent an email to Zenith Bank, but they didn’t respond on time, so I chatted with them via Twitter. I got a number from the Twitter account and was asked to chat with them on WhatsApp,” Ajah said.

“I didn’t realise on time that the number I received was from an impostor. While we were chatting, the scammer said he wanted to help me link up my savings account to my current account so I could start getting notifications.

“Then I got a number from Twitter to chat with on WhatsApp, but I didn’t realise that it wasn’t their number.

“He requested my card details, which I gave him. But immediately after that, I noticed that they withdrew N141,000. It was then that I had to tell my account officer what had happened.”

Ajah stated that she reached out to the bank after the ugly incident occurred but nothing could be done to salvage the situation.

2023: I Rescued You From Obasanjo’s Onslaught, Tinubu Fires Atiku

….Your Continuous Gaffes, Miscues Are Effects Of Your Failing Health, Ex VP Replies Asiwaju

The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has claimed he “rescued” the flagbearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar from former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

Abubakar, who served as vice-president under Obasanjo, had a running battle with his former principal for years.

Both men reconciled ahead of the 2019 general election.

However, Obasanjo has since thrown his weight behind Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) for this year’s poll.

Speaking on Monday during a campaign rally in Uyo, the capital of Akwa Ibom, Tinubu said: “I am the one that rescued him from Obasanjo who wanted to roast him like goat meat.

“He ran away to Dubai, and when the election came again, he (Atiku) came for stomach infrastructure. We rehabilitated him in Lagos and gave him a ticket but he wasted it and used it to collect money.

“He faced Obasanjo, faced Buhari and failed. He failed with Jonathan. He failed in all his subjects.”

Meanwhile, the camp of former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar said the “constant gaffes” of All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate Bola Tinubu were embarrassing.

Tinubu has made over 20 gaffes publicly since he declared his intention to contest, Atiku’s special assistant on public communication Phrank Shaibu indicated on Monday.

A statement he signed said in Tinubu’s rally in Akwa Ibom, the APC flagbearer goofed about making Atiku a Senate President though his opponent never contested any legislative election.

Shaibu noted that the former Lagos governor’s gaffes and miscues are “effects of his failing health” which present danger to national security.

The aide recalled Tinubu’s comment on recruitment of 50 million youths into the Army to solve the unemployment problem, advice to Nigerians to renew their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) before they expire, among others.
