Ikira Aliyu Bilbis, a former minister, has been released

Alhaji Ikra Aliyu Bilbis, a former minister of information and senatorial candidate for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has at long last been unconditionally released on bail following accusations of criminal conspiracy and public disturbances.

Recall that the minister was detained by police officers two weeks ago and charged with destroying All Progressives Congress (APC) billboards and other property at the Zamfara State Upper Sharia Court 11.

The minister was granted bail by the court with the tough requirements of providing two sureties: one who owns a residence in Gusau town worth N20 million and a permanent secretary who is currently employed by the state civil service.

According to kuryaloaded, he was unable to comply with the requirements, which resulted in his imprisonment until Wednesday, December 14, 2022, when he was eventually released unconditionally.

When reached, Barrister Shehu Ajiya, the legal adviser to the state PDP chapter, confirmed his release.

“The former minister was granted bail with no conditions attached.

The presiding judge “was not in court during the resumed hearing of the matter on December 13 but afterwards sent a notice of his release without any restriction,” he said.

The matter was continued for a hearing on the substantive lawsuit on December 27, 2022, according to the state PDP Legal Adviser.
