Bashir Ahmad commented on the trial after being asked to intervene by a Twitter user, Hammad Yusuf Saleh who claimed the conviction was manipulated.
His tweet read;
"Please Bashir, do something about Yunusa Yellow for Allah's sake, he is wrongly accused and sentenced, the whole matter is manipulated, we need to appeal for him."
Reacting to tweet, the Presidential aide who admitted that he has no power to influence the court judgement, promised to contact those who can.
"I do not have the power to do anything against the judgment of the court, but I will try to contact those whom I think are capable."
Reacting to the outrage his tweet incited, the Presidential aide claimed that he commented on the Yunusa Yellow saga without knowing and understanding the details of the case.
He wrote in a rejoinder tweet;
I commented on the Yunusa Yellow saga earlier, without knowing and understanding the details of the case. Eloping or rather, kidnapping a minor and forcing her to marry you shouldn’t be taken lightly. A condemnable act! SHARE THIS NEWS USING ANY OF THE BUTTON BELOW PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW ⬇⬇⬇
