I am Being Persecuted Over 2019 Presidency-Former Gov Lamido Cries Out From Prison

No comments :
There is fire on the mountain oh. After spending 72 hours with his two sons in Kano Central Prison, former governor of Jigawa State, Sule Lamido, has attributed political motives to his incarceration. The former governor's many supporters relocated to the Kano Central Prison where they kept vigil over him and his two sons to show solidarity.

 While shedding tears, Lamido said he was determined to prove to Nigerians that he was innocent but was merely being witch-hunted by those who feel threatened by his rising political profile. According to the former governor, he is being persecuted by those who feel that they would not be able to actualise their presidential ambition with him around the political arena.

According to Vanguard reportage, Lamido and sons are likely to be admitted to bail tomorrow (Monday) as a vacation judge is most likely to hear their bail application on that day. It will be recalled that the trial judge, Justice Evelyn Anyadike, had earlier adjourned the case till September 28 while ordering that the suspects be remanded in Kano Prison after Lamido and his sons were slammed with a 28-count charge for laundering N1.35 billion.

 Anyadike, however, ruled that the case will be handed over to a vacation judge to listen to the accused persons bail application while the judiciary goes on vacation today. Lamido’s associates are already prepared in many ways to meet whatever conditions the vacation judge might stipulate for their release from prison pending the hearing of the case in September.
