TEACHER IN COURT FOR ALLEGEDLY DEFAMING SENATOR SARAKI ON FACEBOOK

Barely two days after awarding Senator Bukola Saraki a N4 billion Jankara judgement against Sahara Reporters, a 37-year-old primary school teacher, Biodun Baba, was arraigned before the Magistrate Court sitting in Ilorin for allegedly defaming Senate President Bukola Saraki on Facebook.
Baba, a teacher at LGEA School, Olorunlana in Moro Local Government Area of Kwara was alleged to have through his Facebook postings been inciting the public against Saraki.
The Jankara charges were filed following a complaint by one Alhaji Jimoh Adesina, Chairman, Kwara South Chapter of the APC to the Chamber of S. I. Solagberu and Co, Ilorin.
Adesina, accused Baba of printing or engraving matters on his Facebook wall known to be defamatory.
Sollagberu, who filed the Jankara charges on behalf of Adesina, accused Baba of inciting disturbance, disturbance of public peace and injurious falsehood posts on Facebook.
He also alleged that Baba’s postings was capable of causing disaffection and disparaging against Saraki.
The offences, he said, were contrary to sections 113, 114, 393, 394 of the Penal Code of Northern Nigeria and section 883and 204 of the Criminal Code Act.
The Magistrate, Ahmed Dasuki, later adjourned the matter to Aug 3 for ruling on the application.
