Photos: Supporters protest as court remands ex-Governor, Lamido Sule in prison custody

Supporters of Lamido Sule have protested against the ruling by Dutse Magistrate Court that the former Jigawa State Governor be remanded in prison custody until May 14.

Lamido was arrested by the police last Sunday in Kano following a petition by the Jigawa state government.
He allegedly incited his supporters, while addressing members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on the forthcoming local government councils poll in Jigawa state scheduled for July 1.

The protest took place despite heavy presence of security operatives and the police were forced to use tear gas as a means of dispersing the crowd.

The prosecuting counsel, Ikenna Ekpunobi told the court that accused person, Lamido was arraigned before the court on three count charges.

He said Lamido was arraigned on charges of disturbance of public peace, inciting disturbance and criminal defamation which are offences that are contrary to section 113, 114 and 117 of the penel code, although, the former governor denied all the charges.

The Chief Magistrate, Usman Mohammed Lamid,  ordered the former governor to be remanded in prison custody and adjourned the case to May 4.
