A federal High Court sitting in Kano has granted bail to Aminu Sule, eldest son of Jigawa state Governor, Alhaji Sule Lamido, who is standing trial over alleged money laundering.

Delivering  judgement on the bail application, Tuesday morning, after an initial bail application was denied on Monday, Justice Fatu Riman said, “It is trite that judicial discretion should be marked by fairness and must be guided by law”,  adding that ” I am persuaded that the prosecution failed to prove that the accused person will jump bail if granted.”

Aminu Sule was arraigned before the High Court by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on suspicion of money laundering following his arrest in November 2012 at the Malam Aminu Kano International Airport en route Egypt.
