Mr Macaroni condemns ‘arrest’ of tweep who said Aisha Buhari gained weight with taxpayers’ money

Comedian and actor Mr Macaroni accused first lady Aisha Buhari of abuse of power over the alleged arrest and detention of a student Aminu Muhammed over an alleged defamatory tweet.

Reportedly unhappy over the ASUU strike, Muhammed had in June tweeted in Hausa “Su mama anchi kudin talkawa ankoshi” loosely translated as “the mother has gotten fatter by eating masses’ money.”

The tweep is said to be a final-year student in the Department of Environmental Management and Toxicology, Federal University Dutse, Jigawa State.

Reports said the 23-year-old was picked up by officers of the Department of State Services on November 8 on campus and was reportedly beaten up following his arrest at about 12:00 noon.

Reacting in a Twitter post on Tuesday, Mr Macaroni who condemned the said arrest also called for the release of Aminu.

The actor asked Aisha to take the matter to court if she has any grievances.

He wrote: “Madam First Lady, you are not God!!! If you have any grievance whatsoever, go to court!!! You are not bigger than the Citizens of Nigeria neither are you bigger than the Law!! You should use your power to serve the people not Oppress them!!
Free Aminu!!”
