Agba Jalingo Granted Bail by Ninokingz1(m): 11:48am On Feb 13
The prosecution of journalist, Agba Jalingo took another twist on Thursday morning as the Cross River State government has reverted to the initial charges of treason, terrorism, cultism and attempt to topple the Cross River state government against him.

Jalingo was docked before Justice Sule Shuaibu of the Calabar division of the Federal High court for the first time after former trial Judge, Simon Amobeda recused himself.

And, when the matter was called up for Jalingo to take a fresh plea on the amended charges filed on October 11, 2019 which bordered on three counts of terrorism and one count of cybercrime, the Judge discovered that a clean copy was not filed by the former prosecutor, Dennis Tarhemba.

Despite the explanation given by the defense counsel that both parties have relied on the copy of the charge used as an annexure to the motion to amend charges, Justice Shuaibu said it was not a proper process filed before the court and can not stand on it’s own.

Taking the hint of the court, the prosecution counsel and Attorney General of Cross River State, Tanko Ashang said they will rely on the initial charges filed on August 30, 2019 which included charges of treason, terrorism, cultism and attempt to topple the Cross River state government.

Jalingo pleaded not guilty to all the charges.

The matter is still ongoing with the defense counsel expected to move the motion for bail.

It is good to be free.


Nothing compares to freedom.

Jalingo and Ayade should resolve their differences amicably, they should give peace a chance to reign.

This is a welcome development. Shame on Gov. Ayade and everybody that had a hand in his unjust incarceration. At the end of the day, the pen is still mightier than the sword. Nobody can silence the press.

To all the Hr officers on nairaland.

Please, you need to be kind to job seekers. Where do you want us to get the experience when we are not given a chance? I can't believe that I'm yet to get a job just because of my age! A B.sc and Nce holder with a Second class upper. Just because I don't have a connection.
It's well with my soul.

Re: Agba Jalingo Granted Bail by Osidazz19: 12:37pm On Feb 13
Just imagine if he had been locked up by Buhari or an APC governor. The level of crying and wailing would have blown off the roof of this motherlover.
Now, it's just compliments as if Ayande is doing the fiy a big favor.
Just goes to show the level of hypocrisy from the perpetual wailing section of the country.
