Man jailed two years for ‘insulting’ Buhari, SGF Mustapha

A young man, Ikamu Hamidu Kato, has been sentenced to two years’ imprisonment for insulting president Muhammadu Buhari and the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha.

Justice Dimas Gwama of the Magistrates’ Court IV in Yola, Adamawa State sentenced Kato to a one-year jail term in each of the offences with an option of N25,000 fine on each offence.

Kato, a youth leader of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party in the Hong area of the state, allegedly took to his Facebook page to condemn the insecurity in the area following recent attacks by armed men suspected to be Boko Haram members, SaharaReporters writes.

He was alleged to have insulted Buhari and Mustapha in a viral video on his Facebook page.

The presiding judge said in passing the sentence, the court had considered the remorseful mien of the convict and his plea for mercies.

But Gwama said despite his show of remorse and plea for mercies, the court had to convict him to serve as deterrent to others.
