The First Lady Vs Aminu And The Prescription Of The Penal Code Against The Consequential Action.Of Aminu

Please those criticizing Aisha Buhari should read section 399 and 400 of the penal code.

399. Whoever uses insulting or abusive language concerning, or otherwise conducts himself towards, a person or class or group of persons, whether the person or any member of that class or group is present or not, in a manner likely to give the provocation to a person present as to cause the last mentioned person to break the public peace or to commit any other offence shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to two years or with fine or with both.

(a) A In the presence of B, uses insulting or abusive language concerning B or otherwise conducts himself towards B in a manner likely to provoke B and cause him to break the public peace or to commit any other offence. A is guilty of an offence under this section.

(b) A, in the presence of B but whether or not in the presence of B uses insulting or abusive language concerning C or otherwise conducts himself towards C in a manner likely to provoke B and cause him to break the public peace or to commit any other offence. A is guilty of an offence under this section.

400. Whoever intending to insult the modesty of a woman utters a word, makes a sound or gesture or exhibits an object, intending that the word or sound shall be heard or that the gesture or object shall be seen by such woman or intrudes upon the privacy of such woman, shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to one year or with fine or with both.

The penal law is very clear here, the penalty under these above subject is one year imprisonment with or without fine.

I stand with Aisha Buhari and Aminu is on his own.
