JUST IN: Court grants bail to comedian, ‘BrotherMike’ accused of public incitement

His council, Matthew Osa-Oghogho disclosed the development on Tuesday afternoon in a Facebook post.

According to him, “The court agreed with our submission that the application for the remand of Mr Chukwu is unmeritous and therefore admitted him to bail. We stand for justice always and at all times!”

Chukwu was arrested by the DSS over accusation of inciting the Public.

The Edo based skit maker had recently been using his comedy skits to talk against poor governance, ‘corrupt’ politicians, and insecurity among others, which may have warranted his arrest.

“Na because of the video wey hin post. He was arrested on June 14, 2022,” she said.
