Just In: Court Deniesy journalist, Agba Jalingo Bail


4 October 2019 

A Federal High Court, sitting in Calabar and presided over by Justice Simon Amobeda has denied bail for Journalist, Agba Jalingo.

Jalingo was arraigned on September 25, 2019 on four charges of treasonable felony, terrorism and attempt to topple the Cross River State government after 34 days in Police custody.

And, Justice Amobeda who also threw out the preliminary objection of the prosecution counsel, held that the charges were grave with one carrying a capital punishment. He also said that one of the grounds for which bail was applied for was health and there was no substantial evidence to prove that his health was failing.
