Federal High Court sitting in Kano has granted the bail application of the House Representatives Majority Leader, Alhassan Ado Doguwa.

The popular politician was arraigned before a Magistrate’s Court on charges bordering on arson and murder in the Tudun Wada Local Government area of Kano state during the recently concluded presidential election.

The member of the Green Chamber is currently being charged for criminal conspiracy, culpable homicide, arson and illegal possession of firearms among others.

Counsel to the defendant, Nureini Jimoh prayed the court to grant the defendant bail on the ground of alleged infringement of his fundamental human rights and absence of jurisdiction by the Magistrate’s Court that had remanded the accused.

Jimoh argued that court did not have jurisdiction to hear the case.

The trial judge, in his ruling, Justice Muhammad Nasir Yunusa granted the defendant’s bail application provided the suspect must provide two sureties, one of which shall be a first-class traditional ruler while the other must be a permanent secretary at the federal or state civil service.
