The leadership of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has declared a nationwide protest to demand the release of Aminu Mohammed.

Aminu, a student of the Federal University, Dutse, Jigawa State, was arrested and sent to prison over a tweet on Aisha Buhari, wife of the President, Muhammadu Buhari.

NANS President Usman Barambu, in a statement obtained on Thursday, said the protest, which would commence on Monday, would be indefinite until Mohammed regained freedom.

NANS had apologised to the First Lady while also calling for the student’s release.

Efforts of the student body to persuade the first lady proved abortive, saying it had exhausted consultation and consolidation options and would thereby be confronting.

The body said, “We have consulted and consolidated, which yielded no desirable results in seeking the freedom of Mohammed; hence, the protest shall commence as follows: Monday, December 5, 2022, nationwide.
