I was given a VIP treatment – Freed journalist
//Godwin Ekosin, Kaduna//
After one week in Kaduna convict prison over an alleged inciting publication against the State Governor, Malam Nasir El-Rufai, Jacob Onjewu Dickson of Authenticnews, an online blog has regained his freedom.
His release follows bail application filed in the Chief Magistrate Court of Kaduna State, holden at Ibrahim Taiwo road, Kaduna by Counsel to accuse, Barrister Timothy Bonnet.
Addressing colleagues who have thronged the court in their numbers to show solidarity shortly after his release, Jacob said he was treated well while his ordeal lasted.
He will now attend court to face his trial whenever the need arises without interfering with investigation in the case.
He was however granted bail at the sum of N100,000 with one surety.
