SAN Bags Prison Sentence

The Lagos State High Court in Ikeja has sentenced a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Dr. Joseph Nwobike, to one month’s imprisonment for perversion of the course of justice.

The court convicted Nwobike of 12 counts bordering on the offence, sentenced him to one month’s imprisonment on each of the 12 counts but said the sentences would run concurrently.

Justice Raliat Adebiyi, who pronounced the verdict today, said the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission proved beyond reasonable doubts that the SAN was in constant communication with court officials to influence the assignment of his cases to his preferred judges.

Naija News recalls that EFCC had on March 9, 2016 arraigned Mr. Nwobike before Justice Adebiyi on a five​-​count charge of allegedly offering gratification and attempting to pervert ​the ​course of justice.
