According to Daily Nigeria, the victims have been kept away from their families since the time the secret police operatives arrested them.
Kaltim who chided Aisha in Hausa alleged that President Muhammadu Buhari deceived Nigerians to get elected and his leadership had exposed all Fulani people.
“Your husband deceived us, lying and crying. It is good that we elected him, and his election has exposed all the Fulanis in Nigeria,” Kaltim was quoted to have said in an audio. “Your government is silent about the killing of Hausa people by Fulani. The southerners have rained all manner of abuses against you, but you are silent. Now you are here intimidating northerners.”
According to Daily Nigeria, one of the victims, Isyaku, is a bureau de change operator, and was arrested for changing Saudi riyals to naira for Ahmed.

She wanted the suspects to be charged.”
The source claimed that Aisha was not happy that Aminu was released. According to the medium, the First Lady was mad at the Inspector-General of Police for liberating the student.
“Even the release of Dutse university student was not done with her consent, and she was angry with the IG (Inspector-General of Police) over the withdrawal of charges against the boy,” the source added.
