A Muslim influencer and reformist Imam, Mohammad Tawhidi, popularly known as Imam of Peace, has mocked President Muhammadu Buhari over a tweet his wife Aisha Buhari made.
Naija News had reported earlier that amid the ongoing #EndSARS protests across various cities in the country, Nigeria’s First Lady, Aisha Buhari, called on President Buhari to “save the people“.

This online news platform understands that Mrs. Buhari’s tweet came at a time protesting youths in Nigeria are agitating for the end to police brutalization and extrajudicial killings of Nigerians. The protesters have been on the streets for more than a week now, protesting the brutalities, humiliation, and extortion of Nigerians, especially the youths.
The protesters demanded an end to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), a police unit under the Force Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department headed by the Deputy Inspector General of Police Anthony Ogbizi, using a hashtag: #EndSARS.
On Sunday, October 11, 2020, the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Mohammed Adamu disbanded SARS following a widespread protest from Nigerians worldwide.
However, since the announcement that SARS has been scrapped, the protesters have refused to leave the streets, which a Presidential Advisory Committee says might force the Federal Government to take drastic measures against the protesting youths.
On the backdrop of the protests, Imam of Peace had since on Friday, October 16, lent his voice to the #EndSARS protests across various cities in Nigeria in series of tweets on the micro-blogging site, Twitter, where he said “It’s not enough to #EndSARS. Everyone found guilty of murder or any crime must be put on trial. This will not happen during Buhari’s failed Presidency. Buhari must resign and the entire mafia: Buhari, Fulani militia, captured Boko Haram and SARS Terrorists must face the law.”
