According to El-Rufai:
“We are going to prosecute him. He was arrested. His statement has been taken.
“He is on bail. He is going to be prosecuted. His fate will be decided by a judge.
“It is not personal. I have nothing against him. In fact, he has worked with the state government in the past.
“But I’m not going to sit as the governor of Kaduna State and allow any one to post or tweet anything that leads to loss of lives without consequences.
“He posted fake pictures of Boko Haram attacks, Rwandan genocide as Southern Kaduna killings.
“It is totally irresponsible to do that.”
