The Federal High Court, sitting in Calabar, has granted bail to the detained Nigerian journalist, Agba Jalingo.

Justice Sule Shuaibu of the Federal High Court, Calabar, on Thursday granted the journalist N10 million bail, following an application from his lawyer, Attah Ochinke.

The court asked that those standing as surety for the journalist must make a refundable deposit of N700,000 to court registry to perfect the bail.

The journalist had filed a fresh application for bail at the Federal High Court, Calabar on February 13, 2019, after his case was transferred to a new judge, Sule Shuaibu.

Shuaibu had taken over the case after Simon Amobeda stepped down due to a secret recording where Amobeda allegedly made some “biased” remarks against Mr Jalingo.

Meanwhile, this new development has generated several reactions. Here are the reaction as follow bellow
