The Department of Security Services (DSS) on Wednesday failed to proceed with the prosecution of the alleged mastermind of President Muhammadu Buhari’s fake marriage video.
The DSS had arraigned one Mohammed Kabiru before a Kano Magistrate’s Court for concocting a video in which he alleged that the minister of humanitarian affairs, disaster management and social development, Sadiya Faruq was getting married to President Muhammadu Buhari.
When the matter was called up for hearing on Wednesday, the prosecution counsel, Ishaya B. Bulus prayed an adjournment. He told the court that the case diary is to be sent the office of Kano state attorney-general and commissioner for justice for legal advice.
He further informed the court that everything required of the DSS to secure legal advice from Kano state ministry of justice is being done.
Counsel to the defendant, Ali A. Jamilu, did not oppose the request for an adjournment. He however prayed the court for a variation of the defendant’s bail conditions.
Barrister Jamilu told the court that the defendant, as part of his bail conditions, was directed to report to the DSS daily. He appealed to the court to soften the stringent condition.
In his ruling, Magistrate Aminu Gabari granted the request made by the defendant through his counsel. The court ordered the defendant to now report to DSS weekly.
The case is adjourned till 24th March, 2020, for hearing.
