Court Grants Chocolate City Boss N40m Judgement Against Gov. El-Rufai

Eniola Awokoya

A federal high court in Abuja, has ordered Kaduna State governor Nasir El-Rufai and the Nigerian police to pay a sum of N40 million to Chocolate City Group boss Audu Maikori, as damages over his illegal arrests and detention.

Maikori was arrested on February 17 and on March 10, 2017, by the police over a series of tweets he sent to his followers, alleging that some students of the Kaduna State College of Education had been killed by Fulani herdsmen in Southern Kaduna.

El-Rufai said at the Social Media Week 2017 on March 2, that Audu was informed about the untrue nature of his posts but still doubled down on them.

“He posted fake pictures of Boko Haram attacks, the Rwandan genocide, as Southern Kaduna killings. It is totally irresponsible to do so.
