El-rufai Orders Chocolate City Boss’ Arrest

Audu Maikori, lawyer and Nigerian music industry mogul, has been arrested by the Nigeria Police Force on the orders of Kaduna Governor, Nasir El Rufai.

According to information available to Newsday, the boss of Chocolate City was picked up in Lagos, on Friday [February 17, 2017], where he lives and flown to the Louis Edet Force Headquarters in Abuja.
The governor ordered his arrest following advocacy that Maikori, a native of Southern Kaduna, had been doing online over the systematic killing of his people by the Islamist terrorist group, the Fulani herdsmen militia.

Mark Jacob, a lawyer involved in the case, told our correspondent by 9:00pm on Friday that he had just left the Police headquarters in Abuja and that a pre-arranged detention order had been issued on Maikori even before he was arrested and his statement taken.
MI Abaga, the CEO of Chocolate City and one of Nigeria’s leading rappers, has taken to Twitter to confirm the news of Maikori’s arrest and called on Nigerian online to call for his release.
Maikori, was recently the target of the All Progressives Congress’ online attack squad, after he relayed a story about the killing of 6 students of a college of education by Fulani herdsmen terrorists on Twitter.
After intense scrutiny, he discovered that his driver had lied to him about the attack which Sunday, the driver, had said his brother was killed.

Audu Maikori issued a retraction and an apology for the misleading report. He issued this apology on February 4, 2017 for the misleading report which was punlished in late January.

Meanwhile, Governor Nasir El Rufai, in his usual vindictive approach to governance, has threatened to deal with Maikori and other indigenes of Southern Kaduna who advocate against the systematic killings of their people who are dominantly Christian, and therefore, killed by an organised Islamist terrorist group, the Fulani herdsmen militia.
