Court fixes Thursday for hearing on bail application of 38 Nasarawa protesters

By Faith Awa Maji

A Chief Magistrate Court sitting in Lafia,  Nasarawa State, has fixed January 25 for the hearing in a bail application of 38 protesters arrested for alleged public disturbance in Lafia.

The Police had on January 19, 2024 arrested the protesters for blocking Lafia/Jos road after the Supreme Court judgment that affirmed the victory of Governor Abdullahi Sule during the 2023 governorship election.

The Police said that the protesters comprising five men and 33 women contravened the peace accord signed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The Magistrate, Mohammed Abdullahi-Lanze, fixed Thursday after listening to arguments by counsels to the complainant and defenders on the bail application.

He said that the accused persons should remain at the Lafia Custodian Centre till the next adjourn date and also ordered the Commissioner of Police to produce the defendants in court on that date.
