Man sentenced to 6months imprisonment for “Insulting” Jigawa Governor, Abubakar On Facebook


A Dutse Magistrate’s Court has sentenced one Sabi’u Ibrahim Chamo to a half year imprisonment for insulting and slandering Governor Muhammadu Badaru Abubakar’s character on Facebook.

Chamo was arrested by the police on December 25 and detained before he was charged to court for inability to prove the claims he made on Facebook.

The police prosecutor told the court that he was charged over a claim he made that the governor had hoodwinked a lot of All Progressives Congress aspirants by collecting their money to give them party tickets.

Chamo confessed to the charge and the court sentenced him to a half year in jail, with choices to pay N20,000 as fine and 20 strokes of the cane to serve as a lesson to other people.
