Court sentenced Ex-Governor to 12 Years in Jail For Fraud


Justice Mary Odili-led five-man panel of Supreme Court justices on Friday, February 7, 2020, in a unanimous judgement upheld the Appeal Court sentencing of former governor of Taraba State, Reverend Jolly Nyame to 12-years in prison for stealing funds belonging to his state, while he served as governor.

Recall that last year, a federal high court in Lagos convicted Orji Uzor Kalu, former governor of Abia state and chief whip of the senate of N7.1 billion fraud.
Mohammad Idris, the presiding judge, sentenced Kalu to 12 years in prison for money laundering.

The judge also ordered that Kalu’s company, Slok Nigeria Limited, be liquidated and its assets forfeited to the federal government.

Kalu stood trial on a 39-count charge brought against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
