Audu Maikori Finally Released on Bail as Court Adjourns Case...See Details

Chocolate City boss, Audu Maikori, who allegedly spent the night in the same cell with killer herdsmen, has been granted bail after he was arraigned before a Court on Monday.

The Chief Executive Officer, Chocolate City Records, Audu Maikori, who was re-arrested in Abuja last week and was held at the Gabasawa Police Station in Kaduna State, has been granted bail after he was arraigned before a Kaduna Magistrate’s Court along Ibrahim Taiwo Road, his lawyer said Monday.

According to Premium Times, Audu's lawyer and associate, John Danfulani, said his client received the bail on “very liberal terms” on Monday afternoon.

It was gathered that the record label executive was taken to court by police officers and the Director of Public Prosecution in Kaduna State, Dari Bayero.

Audu Maikori was facing 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.

Danfulani said his client was granted bail after being charged for the first time on Monday, under the controversial Cybercrime Act.

The government “charged him under Section 24 of Cybercrime Act. He will appear before the Chief Magistrate,” Danfulani told Premium Times by telephone on Monday afternoon.

The court adjourned further hearing on the matter until May 24.
