Embattled Chocolate City boss, Audu Maikori, has been granted bail following his arraignment today before a Kaduna Magistrate’s Court along Ibrahim Taiwo Road, Kaduna.
Gbedu magazine reveals according to his lawyer and associate, John Danfulani, Audu received the bail on “very liberal terms”
Audu was arraigned on allegations of incitement to violence initiated by the Kaduna State Government over inaccurate tweets he posted in which he alleged assassination of some college students in Southern Kaduna. He was arrested last week Friday and held at a police facility in Kaduna, although the police have denied being responsible for his incarceration.
Mr. Danfulani said his client was granted bail after being charged for the first time on Monday, under the Cybercrime Act.
The government “charged him under Section 24 of Cybercrime Act. He will appear before the Chief Magistrate,” Mr. Danfulani said this afternoon. The case has been adjourned to May 24 for further hearing.
Mr. Maikori is the latest Nigerian social media user to be detained under the Cyber Crime Act, which was signed by former President Goodluck Jonathan in 2015.
