Aminu Mohammed, a final-year student of the department of environmental management from Bauchi State had reportedly mocked Aisha Buhari on social media in June.

In Aminu Mohammed tweet, said in Hausa, “Su mama anchi kudin talkawa ankoshi”, meaning “ Mama (first lady) is feeding fat on poor people’s money.”

While 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 the case.

He cited Section 108 subsection 2(a) of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act to move the application for the withdrawal of the case.

Ruling on the matter, Justice Yusuf Halilu of the FCT High Court commended Mrs Buhari for taking the “bold steps” to forgive the accused.

The judge called on parents to always monitor their children to avoid recurrence.
