Just In: Court Reduces Former Taraba State Governor, Nyame’s 14 Years Imprisonment To 12



Jolly Nyame Gets Reduced Jail Term

The Abuja Division of the Court of Appeal on Friday reduced the 14-year 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 total sum of N525m on the convict, a fine that the lower court had omitted while dispensing the earlier sentence.

Naija News recalls earlier today, the Abuja Division of the Court of Appeal had also reduced the sentence of 14-year imprisonment passed on a former Governor of Plateau State, Joshua Dariye, earlier this year, to 10 years.
