Association of Nigerian Students, NANS has apologised to Aisha Buhari, wife of President Muhammadu Buhari over the arrest of a student of the Federal University, Dutse Jigawa, Aminu Mohammed, by the police.

In a statement issued by its president, Usman Barambu, on Tuesday, NANS apologised on behalf of the Nigerian students to the First Lady, while also calling for Mohammed’s release.

The NANS President said Mohammed was taken straight to the Presidential Villa where he was allegedly beaten by the police “ after which he was unlawfully detained at a police facility at Wuse Zone II till date. I, alongside our team of lawyers, met with Mohammed at the police facility where he confirmed the incident to me. Until now, Mohammed has not been arraigned by any competent court of law or granted bail by the police.”

The NANS president said Mohammed had sustained various injuries and had not accessed any proper medical attention.

Recall that Mohammed trended over a tweet on the First Lady.

According to report, Mohammed was arrested by the Department of State Services.

But NANS claimed Mohammed was rather arrested by the Federal Capital Territory Police Command, who traced him to Jigawa where he was picked up.
