“Su mama anchi kudin talkawa ankoshi.”

Mohammads tweet which was accompanied by a photograph of Aisha Buhari, simply translates as

“Mama has eaten poor people’s money and is now full.”

His lawyer, C.K Agu who spoke with BBC Hausa said he was arraigned in court by the police on Tuesday, November 29, where he pleaded not guilty when the charges against him were read out.

Agu further revealed that they’ve made several efforts since November 25 to get the student released on bail but to no avail.

“Even in the court session yesterday, we notified the judge about the efforts made to have him released on bail, but we did not receive any reply from the police.

“We applied to the court to release the student on bail on health grounds and the fact that he will sit for the exam on 5, December. The court has ordered the police to provide the bail application before it for consideration between Tuesday and Wednesday.”

There’s no update on the bail application yet.
