Jigawa State Gov’s Son Who Allegedly Crushed Man To Death, Granted Bail


Aminu Sule, the eldest son of Jigawa state governor, Alhaji Sule Lamido, who was earlier detained by the Kano police command for crushing a middle aged man to death on Wednesday night in Kano, has been released on bail.

Aminu’s release by the police came amid speculation that parents of the auto-crash victim had been convinced to drop legal procedures with promises of mouth watering offers if they agreed to settle out of court.

Aminu Sule who was driving in a SUV sports car, was alleged to have crushed to death the middle aged man along BUK road by Rumfa College Kano around 8.55 Wednesday evening and was arrested on the scene by security agents whose prompt intervention saved him from lynching by the angry mob who had gathered at the scene.

The Police Public Relation Officer, Kano police command, ASP Magaji Musa Majia told newsmen in Kano that the case has been referred to the Director of Public Prosecution for appropriate action.
