Chocolate City founder, Audu Maikori, has been arrested by the police, Pulse reliably gathered.
Sources say his arrest was ordered by the state Governor, Nasir El rufai following the false information about an attack on the College of Education in Gidan-Waya, Kaduna, which was disseminated on social media by Maikori.
He was said to have been arrested in the morning of Friday, February 17.
The label boss had claimed that five students of the school were killed by Fulani herdsmen, including his driver’s younger brother, and he tweeted supposed picture evidence to back the story which turned out to be fabricated information.
