Music Executive, Audu Maikori Wins Lawsuit Against Kaduna State Government




Audu Maikori, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Chocolate City has won a lawsuit brought against the Kaduna state government.

Recall that in 2017 Maikori had slammed a N10 billion lawsuit bordering on the violation of his human rights against the Kaduna State government.

The suit included the state Governor Nasir El-Rufai and the state of Kaduna in particular with the accusation of a violation of his human rights following his arrest for his report on the purported killing of five College of Education students in Southern Kaduna.

Maikori who later apologized for posting the false story which he said was relayed to him by his driver, was arrested and subsequently transferred to Force Headquarters in Abuja for interrogation following a petition was filed by the Kaduna State Government. He was eventually released on bail and cleared of any complicity by the Police Force headquarters.

He was however rearrested and taken to Kaduna where he was detained for four days before being charged to court.  Maikori was later granted bail by the court on health grounds.

Following a fundamental human rights enforcement counter-lawsuit he filed, he has now been awarded damages of N10.5m by a three-man panel of the court who unanimously upheld the ruling of the Federal High Court holding the actions of the Kaduna State Government as unlawful and unconstitutional.

Audu Maikori acknowledged the court judgment by retweeting some posts on his Twitter handle.
