Journalist, Agba Jalingo Granted N10Million Bail By Court

A Federal High court sitting in Calabar, on Thursday morning, granted bail to the detained journalist, Agba Jalingo.

Justice Sule Shuaibu, granted him N10m bail after he had spent 174 days in detention in both the police cell and Calabar prison.

It would be recalled that Mr. Jalingo, the publisher of CrossRiverWatch, was arrested on August 22, 2019, over a report alleging that Cross River State governor, Ben Ayade, diverted N500 million belonging to the state.

While granting the bail, the court asked that those standing as surety for the journalist must make a refundable deposit of N700,000 to court registry to perfect the bail.

Mr. Jalingo was earlier denied bail twice by another judge, Simon Amobeda, who recently withdrew from the case after a secret recording where he (Amobeda) allegedly made some “biased” remarks against Mr. Jalingo, was leaked to the press late last year.
