The President of Chocolate City Group, Audu Maikori was on Friday, awarded a whooping sum of N40 million as compensation for his unlawful arrest and detention between February 17 and 18, 2017 and again March 10 and 13, 2017.

Justice John Tsoho ordered respondents including Kaduna State governor, Nasir El-Rufai and the police to pay the damages to the applicant following the fundamental human rights enforcement suit filed by Maikori on May 5, 2017. The respondents were also directed by the judge to pay the sum of N1,430 to the applicant as the cost of instituting the suit.

However, the judge noted that his judgement was not meant to interfere with the on-going trial of Audu Makori in Kaduna. It was also ruled that the police could justifiably arrest suspects for allegedly violating the law and order on the cyberspace.

Recall that Audu Maikori was arrested on allegations of posting “inciting” tweets alleging the killing of some Southern Kaduna students by Fulani herdsmen. The details of the tweets however, later turned out to be false, which made Maikori express regret over the posts and retracted them, claiming he obtained the information from his driver.
