BREAKING: Appeal Court Reduces Ex-governor, Nyame’s Jail Term, Adds N525m Fine

The Abuja Division of the Court of Appeal on Friday commuted the 14-years  imprisonment imposed by the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Gudu, Abuja on a former Governor of Taraba State, Jolly Nyame, earlier this year, to 12 years.

But the Justice Abdul Aboki-led three-man panel of the Court of Appeal, in addition to the 12-year sentence, also imposed a fine of the total sum of N525m on the convict, a fine that the lower court had omitted while dispensing the earlier sentence.

Earlier on Friday, the Abuja Division of the Court of Appeal had also commuted the sentence of 14-year imprisonment passed on a former Governor of Plateau State, Joshua Dariye, earlier this year, to 10 years.
