Kato said to be outraged by the Boko Haram attack on Dabna community, during which over 20 persons lost their lives, took to Facebook, to call out the SGF and Buhari over their failure to secure the lives of residents of his council where the SGF also hails from.

The Chief Magistrate, Dimas Elishama, after taking the plea of guilt from Katoon Monday however convicted Kato and sentenced him to one-year imprisonment, for the use of insulting or abusive words with the option of a N25,000 fine.
