Erstwhile Governor of Jigawa State, Sule Lamido has on Sunday publicly pleaded with his sons, Aminu and Mustapha, to forgive him for their recent detention.
Lamido, who made the plea while speaking with international radio station, VOA Hausa service, claimed total responsibility for his sons’ ordeal in the hands of the law.
He said, ”In the process to improve democracy, there would be some mistakes. I am not a perfect human being; I have my own shortcomings. And in my own case, I’m outspoken, which perhaps explained why people found me too offensive and irritating”.
The former Governor revealed that his pains weren’t his detention, but that of his sons who were innocent but had to suffer simply because their father served as a governor.
Lamido and his sons were briefly held in a Kano prison before a Federal High Court granted them bail.
