70-Year-Old Man Who Insulted President Buhari Jailed For 18 Months
A court sitting in Katsina State on Tuesday sentenced a 70-year-old man, Lawal Izala, to 18 months imprisonment.
Izala was arrested last week for allegedly insulting President Muhammadu Buhari and Governor Aminu Masari.
The septuagenarian and two others were arraigned for inciting disobedience to civil authorities and disrespect to authorities through demeaning utterances.
But speaking with journalists on Tuesday, Izala said he spoke out of anger when he visited his village and found out that bandits had killed his family members and rustled 15 of his cows.
