According to Ugochinyere, the president's wife does not have the right to order the arrest and torture of her critics, Sun Newspaper added.

Going further, CUPP accused the Nigeria’s first lady of adopting the method of former head of state Gen. Sani Abacha, to kidnap and torture her critics.

The statement read in part:

“The first lady and other leaders should stop their reckless and naked display of power and always follow the constitution in seeking redress if they feel they are wronged."

The opposition spokesperson regretted that while in detention Mohammed has missed his examination, and called for his immediate release.

“The government and security agencies must release the boy from illegal detention so that he can join his colleagues to continue his examination.”

In a move that will surprise many Nigerians, Najatu Mohammed, a commissioner in the Police Service Commission (PSC), had requested for the prosecution of the first lady for taking the law into her own hands.
