Governor of Kaduna State, Mallam Nasir – El-Rufai has incurred the wrath of Nigerians on social media after he reportedly stated he would force media houses based in Lagos authoring fake new, to face trial in Kaduna State.
El-Rufai is known for his intolerance towards news stories he considers fake; there have reported cases of him prosecuting those he adjudge fake news peddlers in the state.
This time the Governor warns being based outside Kaduna State will not save anyone who intends writing fake news about the state.
He said this at the launch of a book titled, ‘Digital Wealth”, by blogger, Japheth Omojuwa, in Abuja on Tuesday.
Reacting, Nigerians on social have slammed the former FCT ministers as a hypocrite and wasted no time in reminding the Governor of his antecedent in the business of fake news.
See reactions below;
If elrufai will run for President and he’s the only candidate, I won’t vote in the election. This guy is a tyrant and should not lead a country. He will have so many dungeons where critics are incarcerated. He’s a demagogue.

This man (evil) is really going mad, needs some medication, close supervision and attention.
When the spirits of those killed by a man arises after the man, the man starts behaving and talking carelessly, stupidly and senselessly.@elrufai has finally gone crazy and mad.
