Gov Buni Orders Release Of Detained Teenager, Alleged To Have Insulted Him

Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe State has ordered the immediate release of a teenager arested and detained by the police for allegedly insulting him.

This was revealed on Tuesday in a statement by his Director-General of Press and Media Affairs, Mamman Mohammed, in Damaturu.

The governor disclosed that he was unaware of the teenager’s arrest and detention. He also added that it was irrational to arrest anyone for criticising or insulting him.

“This is the price of leadership, and we are fully conscious of it; therefore, I couldn’t have ordered nor condoned the detention of anyone.

“Until someone drew my attention to it, I wasn’t aware of his arrest and detention. I have now directed his immediate release from detention,” he said.

Buni, however, urged that criticisms and contributions should be constructive, advising that social media users should respect the rights of citizens, including religious and socio-cultural differences of others.
