Breaking: Appeal Court Reduces Ex-Gov Nyame’s 14-Year Jail Term To 12, Adds N525m Fine


The Abuja Division of the Court of Appeal on Friday commuted 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.
