Lamido, sons flown to Abuja ahead of bail


Former Jigawa state Governor, Sule Lamido and his sons – Aminu and Mustapha were on Monday flown to Abuja for hearing of their bail application slated for Tuesday.

The ex-governor and his sons were last week arraigned on a 28-count charge before Justice Evelyn Anyadike of the Federal High Court, Kano.

The accused persons, however, denied all the charges against filed against them and asked the court to grant their bail application, a request that was rejected by the judge.

The lead counsel to the accused persons, Offiong Offiong(SAN) , prayed the court to grant the accused persons bail application, but  the prosecution lawyers led by Barr. Chile Okoroma, objected to the request, arguing that they were served with the motion very late.
