Audu Maikori Drags Governor El-Rufai to Court for Human Rights Violation | Demands N10bn as Damages



President of Chocolate City Group Audu Maikori has slammed a violation of human rights suit against Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna.

The suit was filed at the Federal High Court, Abuja by Maikori’s lawyers Ballason’s Chambers and he is demanding N10 billion damages.

The case was heard by Justice John Tsoho on Tuesday and Maikori is praying the court to enforce his fundamental rights against undue harassment and intimidation by the Kaduna State government, the State Governor and the Nigeria Police.

See details of the suit below:

The Nigeria Police arrested Maikori for alleged incitement after a petition was filed by the Kaduna State Government over a story he published on his social media pages that turned out to be false.

He was eventually released on bail and cleared of any complicity by the Police Force Headquarters.

He was then rearrested and taken to Kaduna where he was detained for four days before he was charged to court. He was granted bail on health grounds.

El-Rufai, had before his second arrest, vowed to prosecute Maikori at the fifth edition of Social Media Week in Lagos.

    Good! I am glad Audu isn’t sitting quiet. Yes, governors can be held accountable for their actions.

    Yes Please!!! I could write an essay on 101 reasons why fake Governor El-Rufai should be served, along with facts and pie charts sef. Go Audu, Go! If justice takes its due course, Audu will win this case but if godfatherism wins, well karma will do her job later on. Watch your back, Nasiru, watch it sucker.

    I’m so happy he’s suing the evil short man called El Rufai. I’ve been wondering what happened to this case. Audu, stay strong. You are in my prayers.

    El Rufai comes across as a vindictive bully. His self righteous self needs to taste some of his own medicine.

    As happy as i am about this news, I have to alert Bellanaijirians to this evil little demon’s plans for 2019. Anyone who has been paying attention can attest to the fact that he has been positioning himself especially in the int’l community for 2019. I hope Nigerians learn from 2015 and not let ourselves be deceived again, enough of this foolish “born to rule” nonsense. These Northerners will keep doing this shit till the South unites and says enough! i hope 2019 is when Southerners and Nigerians as a whole wake up! shalom

    Today, I’m here for this.

    And the Nigerian judicial should better respect itself for a rare moment and let this case get properly tried. No shenanigans with Ghana-must-go bags ?

    It is clear that ElRufai is a wicked person. I voted for him in 2015 but since he got into power it seems he has changed. His handling of the Southern Kaduna killings is very poor and anyone who complains gets arrested and jailed or threatened. If Audu can run against him in 2019 he should he will make a better governor than this tyrant <Hell even Shehu Sani will be a much better governor , but we will never vote him back again!
