“As a father in Jigawa, sending me to Kiyawa prison by present governor Badaru is an insult to all Jigawa people, and I am assuring you that, the governor must regret taking this action, and to me as politician jail is nothing but rather just a fashion.

” Former Jigawa State Governor, Sule Lamido, said on Thursday at a meeting of members of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, held at the party secretariat in Dutse, the Jigawa State capital.

Recall that in May, 2017, a Chief Magistrate Court sitting in Dutse, ordered Lamido’s remand when he was brought before it by the state government over alleged public disturbance.

Before he was charged to court, the former governor was arrested and was in police custody in neighbouring Kano State.
