Sule Lamido’s Money Laundering Case Bailable Offence -Col Umar

Governor of Jigawa State, Alhaji Sule Lamido

Colonel Abubakar Umar (rtd) of the Movement For Unity and Progress has lamented the treatment meted to the former governor Sule Lamido and his son, saying their case is a bailable offence.

His words:

“The offence, for which Sule Lamido and his two sons were charged,  is clearly  a bailable offence. This is why it appears strange that not only were they  refused  bail but they are remanded 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.

“It behoves on all men of good conscience to appeal to the trial Judge  to reconsider  this high -handed  decision. 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 son’s bail.”
