Former military governor of Kaduna state and currently the National chairman of the Movement For Unity and Progress (MUP), Colonel Abubakar Umar Dangiwa (rtd) has accused the high court judge who placed former Jigawa state governor, Sule Lamido and his two sons on over two months detention in prison for an offence that is bailable, of high handedness.
Dangiwa, who in a statement today described the judgement as strange, called on people of good conscience to rally round and prevail on the trial Judge to “reconsider  this high -handed  decision.”
He argued that the strange part of the judgment is that the accuse and his sons were denied bail which the case requires, and sent them into remand in prison custody  for about three months.
“This means that both Sule and his sons have started serving  a prison sentence even before the commencement of their trial.
“The principle of the accused being adjudged innocent  until proven guilty must apply in this case.
“We are also aware that persons with similar cases had been granted and are being granted bail.We appeal to the trial judge to temper justice with mercy by granting Governor Sule Lamido and his sons bail.”
