Audu Maikori and Mallam Nasir El-Rufai
Chocolate City boss and social activist, Mr. Audu Maikori has sued the Governor of Kaduna State, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai for the violation of his human rights.
In a suit (FHC/ABJ/CS/385/17) filed by his lawyers, Ballason’s Chambers at the Federal High Court, Abuja, Mr. Maikori, is seeking damages against Governor El-Rufai to the tune of N10billion.
According to details of the suit, which came up for hearing before the trial judge, Hon. Justice John Tsoho on Tuesday, 16th May, 2017, Mr. Maikori prayed the court to enforce his fundamental rights against undue harassment and intimidation by the Kaduna State government, the State Governor and the Nigerian Police.
Maikori has been arrested multiple times by security operatives for publishing a fake report on Twitter about the onslaught on Christians in the restive Southern part of Kaduna State.
According to his prosecutor, his action was capable of aggravating the already tumultous situation in the northern part of Nigeria.
