Court admits man accused of calling Governor Ganduje and his sons “Kano thieves” to N500 bail

A Kano State magistrate’s court has admitted Muazu Magaji Danbala, the man who called the governor and his children “Kano thieves” to bail in the sum of N500 with two sureties in like sum.

The First Information Report alleged that the defendant on October 26, 2021, at about 1100hrs posted on Facebook the image and portrait of the governor of Kano State and his children Abdulaziz Ganduje and Balaraba Ganduje and boldly wrote on it ‘Barayin Kano’

However, the defendant had pleaded not guilty to the charges and thereafter defence counsel, one Barrister Saka applied for his bail.

On Monday, November 8, when the case resumed for ruling on bail applications, the trial magistrate admitted the defendant to bail in the sum of N500 with two sureties who shall be a village head of Sabon Garin Kiru and the Hisbah commander of Kiru LGA.

Consequently, after the court ruling on the bail application, the defence counsel prayed the court to further review the conditions.

The counsel argued that no village head or commander of Hisbah in the entire Kano State will stand as surety in a matter that involved the Kano State governor.

He argued that both the Hisbah commander and village head are civil servants working under the Kano State government.
