A Chief Magistrate Court in Port Harcourt has granted bail to the Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party in Rivers State, Samuel Nwanosike and three other chieftains of the PDP who were arrested by the Nigerian Army during Saturday’s rerun legislative election in Etche/Omuma Federal Constituency of the state.
 
They were granted bail on self recognition by the Chief Magistrate, Andrew Jaja.
 
In another development, the Nigerian Airforce has adapted its l-39za trainer aircraft for combat role.
 
The airforce says this is an attempt to commit more of its platforms to the various internal security operations around the country.
 
The airforce also successfully test fired the aircraft fitted with rockets and canons.
 
This was at the airforce air range in Makurdi, Benue State.
