A Dutse magistrates’ court has granted bail to Sule Lamido, former governor of Jigawa state.

Lamido was standing trial on a four-count charge of inciting public disturbance, defamation of character, criminal intimidation and disturbance of public peace.

The magistrate granted the two-term governor bail on self-recognisance and adjourned the case till July 5.

The court had ordered Lamido remanded after he was charged with incitement and adjourned the case till May 4, for the continuation of the case.


The offences contravened sections 113, 114, 392 and 394 of the penal code.

Yakubu Ruba and Felix Jones, his counsels, said that the offences were bailable and wondered why the court did not grant the accused bail.

Lamido was arrested by the police in Kano on Sunday for the offences.
