The Kaduna State Government has arraigned Audu Maikori, president of Chocolate City Group before a Magistrate’s Court along Ibrahim Taiwo Road, Kaduna, over alleged incitement to violence.

His lawyer and associate John Danfulani told Premium Times that Audu was charged “under Section 24 of Cybercrime Act.”

“He will appear before the Chief Magistrate,” Danfulani added.

Danfulani said Audu received bail on “very liberal terms”.

Dari Bayero, the Director of Publc Prosecution in Kaduna State and some police officers brought Audu to court.

Audu was arrested last Friday and was detained at a police facility. The Kaduna state police however, denied knowledge of the matter.

    this elrufai na wa o! I hope all his political ambitions end with Kaduna State governor. So of all the problems people in kaduna are facing this is the one he has energy for. I hoped he hasnt forgotten how out spoken he was before he was governor and no one punished him for it. For Gods sake Audu has apologized and was miss led. The fact now is what is he doing about all the people that died in Kaduna that’s what we want to know.

      Jirta, what happens to the lives lost as a result of Mai Kori’s misinformation? Let the trial continue not necessarily for him to be incarcerated but to serve as deterrent to rumour mongers. .Mai Kori, being a respected community player needed to have pick his phone to confirm from highly placed community leaders instead of relying solely on his driver and posting on social media. I once found myself in similar situation. Luckily for me, I called the police to inform them. The police investigated and it was discovered that it was not true. When the police called to tell me that it was not true, I felt very cheap and embarrassed.
