Chocolate City Boss, Audu Maikori has reportedly sued the Governor of Kaduna State, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai for violation of his human rights.
According to the law suit, 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.
The suit came up for hearing before the trial judge, Hon. Justice John Tsoho on Tuesday, 16th May, 2017
Maikori who has been advocating for his state people is seeking damages against Governor El-Rufai to the tune of N10 billion.
An indigene of Southern Kaduna, Maikori was arrested by the Nigeria Police on charges of incitement, based on a petition by the Kaduna State Government.
After intense social media pressure, he was released on bail and cleared of any complicity by the Police Force Headquarters.
However, he was re-arrested during the Social Media Week and taken to Kaduna, after Governor El-Rufai publicly vowed to prosecute him.
After been detained for four days, he was released on bail based on medical grounds.
