The governor of Nigeria's Bauchi State has dismissed a civil servant after he accused the former of corruption on a Facebook post.
Abbas Faggo lost his job after he accused governor Isa Yuguda of corruption, questioning the source of funding of his son's wedding which took place recently.
Faggo was suspended from work and presented before a magistrate who dismissed the case against him.
But, the governor directed the head of civil service in the state to dismiss Faggo from his job.
