Man Arraigned Over Facebook Comment On Yuguda

The Bauchi state Police Command has arraigned a civil servant Abbas Ahmed before a Chief Magistrate’s Court for allegedly defaming the character of Governor Isa Yuguda Facebook.

Ahmed was alleged to have accused the governor of spending huge public funds on the wedding of his son.

Police prosecutor, Sergeant Rufai Ahmed, told the court that the State Criminal Investigation Department received a request from the Attorney General and Commissioner of Justice, Barrister Almustapha Suleiman, to investigate the case of injurious falsehood and defamation contrary to Section 393, 394 of the Penal Code.

Chief Magistrate Mohammed Kafin Madaki granted the application and remanded the suspect in police custody, and adjourned the suit to tomorrow for further mention.
