Nigerian Police Pension Thief Arraigned, Remanded To Jail By Another Judge


A Nigerian public official involved in the theft of some $203million police pension fund has been remanded in prison custody by another judge some 48 hours after a public outrage greeted his light sentence on Monday.
 
Justice Adamu Bello remanded John Yakubu Yesufu to jail this morning after he was freshly charged to court for failure to disclose his assets.
 
Mr. Yesufu had earlier been sentenced to two years maximum prison term with an option of $1,500 last Monday after he pleaded guilty to stealing $203 million while administering the Nigerian police pension fund.
 
The new judge denied Mr. Yesufu bail and ordered him sent to jail until March  for the next trial date.
