The music executive has been detained againbarely 22 days after his first arrest on February 17, 2017, on charges relating to comments he made about the Southern Kaduna killings.

The activist and lawyer was rearrested two days after he collapsed at an event in Lagos and was subsequently rushed to ST Nicholas hospital.

Linda Ikeji reports the public speaker has been whisked off to Kaduna state.

Details of his re-arrest remains sketchy.

Pulse has reached ou to his reps who are yet to respond.

Maikori was arrested for 'inciting violence' with his social media posts and was released a day later following pleas and interventions from social media.

In the tweets and and Facebook posts, Maikori splashed pictures of 'killings' and violence in Southern Kaduna, interspersing same with loads of commentary.

As it turned out, most of the graphic images Maikori posted of corpses strewn across the streets, were not images from the violence in Southern Kaduna.
