The Presidency has reacted to reports that a Nigerian pharmacist, Solomon Akuma, has been remanded in prison for a year for criticizing President Muhammadu Buhari.
Sahara Reporters reported that Solomon has been in detention for over a year for criticising Buhari as he appeared in court on Wednesday, March 24, but was denied bail.
Reacting, Presidential aide, Bashir Ahmad wrote on Twitter: “For criticizing Buhari? No, a few 100s criticize the President on daily, nothing has ever happened to them.
“For Akuma, it is not an issue of criticism, he publicly said that he will pay an assassin to kill the President and late CoS. We all ought to know, there is a price for that.”
