Aminu Mohammed Adamu, a final year student of Federal University, Dutse, Jigawa State, who was arrested for trolling the wife of President Muhammadu Buhari has been released from prison unconditionally.
According to reports, Aminu is expected to meet President Muhammadu Buhari before reuniting with his family
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.
Aminu’s guardian, Kabiru Shehu, who confirmed the development to the newsmen said Aminu was currently in Aso Villa in Abuja and waiting to see President Buhari.
According to him, “Aminu has been released. He is currently in Aso Villa and waiting to see President Muhammadu Buhari.
“We are happy about this development and we are happy. We can’t wait to reunite with him.”
