According to him, the matter will come to a much more desirable outcome when the court resumes next year.

Jalingo is facing charges of terrorism, treasonable felony and attempts to topple the Cross River state government at the Federal High Court in Calabar.

The journalist was arrested in Lagos by operatives attached to the Intelligence Response Team of the Nigerian Police in August 2019.

“The Agba Jalingo case is most embarrassing and extremely regrettable. I can assure you all that His Excellency Atiku Abubakar is working with all parties to get a resolution.

“As soon as the court is back from its recess, the matter will come to a much more desirable outcome,” he said.
