Following his arrest by the Kaduna State Government in February 2017, Chocolate City Boss, Audu Maikori has served the Governor of Kaduna State, Mallam Nasir El Rufai with a counter law suit.
Maikori through his lawyers, Ballason’s Chambers (FHC/ABJ/CS/385/17) is taking El Rufai to court and is seeking damages to the tune of N10Billion.
It was gathered that Maikori during the court hearing on Tuesday, 16th of May 2017 , appealed to Hon. Justice Tsoho to let the law take its cause and enforce his fundamental rights against undue harassment and intimidation by the Kaduna State government, the State Governor and the Nigerian Police.
It will be recalled that Maikori, Kaduna indigene spearheaded a social media campaign to expose the Southern Kaduna killings in a particular Government school in Kaduna.
It was later discovered that the news was fault. Maikori on his part apologized and blamed the misinformation on his driver. However, this was not taken lightly by the Kaduna State Government as Governor El Rufai ordered Maikori’s arrest and detention, a move the Chocolate City boss and his associates denounced as an infringement on his human rights.
He was later released and granted bail but subsequently rearrested and charged to court on cybercrime and incitement charges..
