A military court martial in Sokoto State has granted bail to a lance corporal, Idakpini Martins, seven months after he was detained.

The soldier’s lawyer, Tope Akinyode, confirmed the development on Thursday.

Last year, Martins in a published video criticized President Muhammadu Buhari and the Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai’s handling of the Boko Haram crisis.

He alleged that the duo failed to provide adequate resources to soldiers fighting Boko Haram.

Following the video, he was arrested and detained in Abuja.

Martins was not allowed to have legal representation for a month until Akinyode, a rights lawyer, approached a Federal High Court in Abuja, to file a rights violation lawsuit.

Despite the court order, the army did not allow him to see his families and the matter was later transferred to Sokoto State where he was to face the court martial at the city he committed the alleged offence in.

Speaking with newsmen on Thursday evening, Akinyode noted that the soldier has been granted bail.
