The Department of States Security Service on Tuesday arraigned Kabiru Mohammed, the man allegedly behind the news of President Muhammadu Buhari’s fake wedding.
OduNews had earlier reported that the DSS revealed that Kabiru Mohammed is the mastermind of the viral fake news of President Muhammadu Buhari’s wedding.
DSS alleged that Kabiru purported the fake news of a wedding between the President and Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Sadiya Faruk.
Kabiru created a frenzy in the country by spreading a fake wedding ‘Fatiha’ card.
The accused is charged on a two-count charge of Defamation and Injurious falsehood contrary to section 392 and 393 of the Kano Panel Code. The charges will attract a maximum of three years imprisonment without fines if the suspect is found guilty of the offence.
The story of the president’s purported wedding card with the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Faruk went viral on social media last 2019.
The fake wedding arrangement which took the presidency awhile to counter or confirm attracted mix reaction especially from opposition party.
