Popular comedian and actor, Debo Adedayo, popularly known as Mr Macaroni, has called on Aisha Buhari, wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, to go to court if she feels resentful over a social media post made about her by a student of the Federal University, Dutse, Jigawa State, Aminu Mohammed.
Mr Macaroni stated that the First Lady is also a Nigerian. Hence, should not abuse power but go to court as legally expected.
While reacting on Tuesday in a series of tweets via his verified Twitter account, Mr Macaroni said he had been a “victim of oppression” and he could speak so much about issues like that of Mohammed’s.
“I can speak so much about issues like this because I have been a victim of oppression and brutality and I know how horrible the experience is! If you are being held by security agents with backing from political figures, they will do the unthinkable!! Dem go lick you finish!
“President Goodluck Jonathan and his wife suffered so many insults. Even from people who are in this present government.
“The All Progressives Congress trolls curse and insults some of us here everyday. We dey chest am. The ones we can’t chest, we go to court,” the comedian said, adding “Madam First Lady, stop abusing power! Madam First Lady, you are not God! If you have any grievance whatsoever, go to court!” he argued.
Mohammed was arrested by the Federal Capital Territory Police Command, Wuse Zone II, Abuja, over a tweet saying “Su mama anchi kudin talakawa an koshi” (translated from Hausa to ‘the mother has gotten fatter by eating masses’ money’).
The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) in a statement on Tuesday by its President, Usman Barambu, apologised on behalf of the Nigerian students to the First Lady.
