A magistrate court sitting in Dutse has granted a former Jigawa
State governor, Sule Lamido bail on own recognisance, Premium Times.
 
The prosecutor, Ikenna Ekpunobi, had argued that Mr. Lamido should
not be granted bail as he could jeopardise peace in the state.
 
The magistrate, Muhammad Lamin, disagreed with the counsel.
 
Mr. Lamin also rejected a police report tendered allegedly linking the former governor to violence by his supporters.
 
The counsel to Mr. Lamido, Felix John, argued that his client remained innocent until proven guilty.
 
He said the evidence upon which the former governor was being tried
was documentary and as such there was no witness to influence. He said
Mr. Lamido, being a former governor, could not jump bail.
 
The magistrate ruled that the charge against Mr. Lamido, of inciting violence, was bailable.
 
“(There is) no evidence before the court that if the accused
person his granted bail he will jump bail and no evidence other people
will commit similar offense and that the accused will jeopardise peace
of the state,”
he said.
 
Mr. Lamido was arrested on Sunday and his homes in Kano and
neighbouring Jigawa searched. Nothing incriminating was found in both
houses.
 
He was tried on Tuesday for allegedly inciting his supporters to
violence over the forthcoming local government elections in Jigawa
State. The magistrate then ordered he be remanded in prison custody till
Thursday (today).
 

He has denied the charges and his party, PDP, has accused the ruling All Progressives Congress of victimisation
