Former Jigawa State governor, Sule Lamido has been granted bail on own recognisance.

A magistrate court sitting in Dutse on Thursday 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,” Muhammad Lamin.


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.
