70-year-old Man Arrested For Insulting President Buhari In Katsina Sentenced to 18 Months Imprisonment

A court sitting in Katsina State on Tuesday sentenced a 70-year-old man, Lawal Izala, to 18 months imprisonment.

Izala was arrested last week for allegedly insulting President Muhammadu Buhari and Governor Aminu Masari.

The septuagenarian and two others were arraigned for inciting disobedience to civil authorities and disrespect to authorities through demeaning utterances.

But speaking with journalists on Tuesday, Izala said he spoke out of anger when he visited his village and found out that bandits had killed his family members and rustled 15 of his cows.

Delivering judgement on the matter, the court found Izala guilty of two count charges of inciting violence and disrespect for civil authorities.

He was sentenced to six months jail term for the first charge and one year for the other charge.

Izala was however, given the option of ₦10,000 fine for the first charge and N20,000 for the second offence.

SaharaReporters gathered that some kind-hearted fellows in the state paid the N30,000 fine and the 70-year-old had been released.

He lost his family members and his cows.
Now his freedom has been taken away...

This is nothing short of tyranny.
This confirms Buhari as a tyrant!

Edit: Him being freed via bail doesn't change the fact that the govt deemed to take his freedom as the price for 18 months.

If Buhari was Trump that received the middle finger from that lady that time, that lady might have been killed on that spot or eventually sentenced to death by cutting her hands and body parts.
Jonathan received much more, nothing happened to anyone!

That's good though released but he has received his dividends of democracy.


What were they thinking when they were all shouting sai baba...Sai buhari?

They thought it will be rosy?

In 1984 it wasn't rosy under buhari, how can it be rosy under him in 2020?


Buhari is a modern day disaster to have happened to the history of mankind........same way Nigeria is a crime against humanity.

Dictators in Agbadas. The terrible thing is if there was an election today, Nigerians will still vote for Buhari with a so called overwhelming majority.

Nigerians deserve the leaders they vote for.

Buhari frees Boko Haram bandits from prison yet jails a man who insulted him because of his bad governance ....When people are being released from prison for misdemeanor to ease the transmission of COVID Buhari is sending another person there just because the person insulted him

If he had ever said Sia Baba or displayed the 4+4 sign, now here comes Baba, all family members gone, source of livelihood (cows) gone and now his freedom gone for a year and six months just for insulting his god.
Some foolish actions are very costly, I imagined this man shouting Sia Baba in 2015 and 4+4 in 2019.
