As reported by Leadership, shortly after the court fixed the new date for trial, his counsel, Ahmed Raji, said his client is ready for trial.

He noted that since the court has ordered expeditious hearing in the matter, there would be no need to appeal the ruling on his bail for now.

Why Miyetti Allah was dragged to court by Tinubu’s govt

President Bola Tinubu-led federal government arraigned the leader of the Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore group, Bello Bodejo, before the federal high court in Abuja.

Badejo was arrested for establishing an ethnic militia group known as Kungiya Zaman Lafiya in Nasarawa state, but the court adjourned the case.

The Miyetti Allah leader was arraigned on allegation of terrorism after spending days in Defence Intelligence Agency (DIA) detention.
