A man from the northern part of the country will be spending time behind bars for defaming the governor of his state who is a member of the ruling All Progressives Congress.



A Katsina Chief Magistrate’s Court has sentenced one Gambo Saeed to nine months imprisonment for insulting and defaming the character of Gov. Aminu Masari of Katsina State on social media. Saeed resides in Muduru village in Mani Local Government Area of Katsina State.

The Police Prosecutor, Insp. Isa Liti, earlier told the court that Saeed was arraigned following complaints received from Mr Mansur Ali Mashi, Senior Special Assistant (SSA), to the Governor on Radio Monitoring.

“Mashi said the accused person abused Masari and called him names on social media.

“He said the accused person posted on the media that it was Gov. Masari who influenced the impeachment of Speaker of Katsina State House of Assembly, Aliyu Muduru.’’

Liti said police arrested the accused person and arraigned him for intentional insult, defamation of the governor’s character and inciting disturbance.

The charges were in accordance with sections 399, 392 and 114 of the Penal Code.

He also explained that the accused person confessed to have committed the offences.

Delivering the judgment on Monday in Katsina, Chief Magistrate Abdu Ladan, said the court has found the accused person guilty of the said offences; each charge attracts three years imprisonment.

Ladan then sentenced the accused to nine months imprisonment without option of fine.
