Sacked policemen arraigned for pillaging Goodluck Jonathan’s house
The policemen who were dismissed from the Force for burgling the Abuja house of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan have been arraigned by the Federal Capital Territory Police Command, Abuja.
The house in question was situated at No. 89 Fourth Avenue, Gwarimpa District.
They were arraigned at a magistrate court in Wuse, Abuja.
While taking their pleas, the magistrate, Mabel Segun-Bello, granted one of the suspects, a N7m bail, noting that the law is clear about a citizen’s right to liberty.
“Bail is granted to allow the accused attend trial. Where it is perceived that the accused may jump bail, he may be denied,” Segun-Bello said.
