Ikama Kato, a suspended youth leader of the Peoples Democratic Party in Adamawa State’s Hong Local Government Area, has been charged with insulting President Muhammadu Buhari and the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha.
Kato, who has been remanded in custody, is accused of insulting President Buhari and the SGF, who is from the same region as him, on Facebook.
Kato had chastised the two leaders about escalating insecurity in various parts of the country, including recent attacks in his area by armed men suspected of being Boko Haram members, but the subject has now landed him in hot water.
Kato was said to have recorded and posted a video in which he described the SGF as “a disappointment and a failure” and described him and Buhari as “useless men” in power.
The youth leader eventually apologized after the suspension.
