Amnesty International has called for the immediate release of a young Nigerian, He was arrested after posting a tweet deemed offensive towards the nation’s first lady Aisha Buhari.

Illegal arrests are not uncommon in Africa’s most populous country, despite having a stable democracy since 1999 after decades of military dictatorships.

Twenty-three-year-old Aminu Adamu Muhammed was arrested on 8 November 2022 at midnight.

His family and friends alleged that he was held incommunicado and subjected to severe beating, torture and other forms of ill-treatment.

The Department of State Services (DSS) told AFP on Monday it was not behind the alleged detention, while Nigeria’s federal police did not respond to a request for comment.
