Mr Jalingo had filed a fresh application for bail at the Federal High Court, Calabar.
His case was transferred to a new judge, Sule Shuaibu. Mr Shuaibu is the administrative judge of the Federal High Court, Calabar. He took over the case over from a judge within the same high court, Simon Amobeda, who withdrew from it after a secret recording where he (Amobeda) allegedly made some “biased” remarks against Mr Jalingo, was leaked to the press late last year.
Mr Jalingo, the publisher of CrossRiverWatch, was arrested on August 22, over a report alleging that Cross River State governor, Ben Ayade, diverted N500 million belonging to the state.
