Police to arraign journalist, Agba Jalingo today

The Nigerian Police is expected to arraign journalist and rights activist, Agba Jalingo, today at the Federal High Court in Calabar, Cross River State.

After 33 days in detention, his lawyer, Mr James Ibor, told journalists that the police had picked a date to arraign Jalingo in court.

He said, “I have been informed that he will be arraigned at Court 2 of the Federal High Court in Calabar on Wednesday.”

Jalingo is being charged with conspiracy to overthrow the Cross River State Government, treasonable felony and terrorism; charges which pressure groups have described as laughable.
