Appeal Court Uphold's Jolly Nyames Jail Sentence For 12 Years, Adds New N495m Fine

The Abuja Division of the Court of Appeal has reduced the 14-year jail term of Jolly Nyame, a former Governor of Taraba State to 12 years.

In May 2018, Nyame was charged to court by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on a 41-count of allegedly diverting N1.64billion during his eight-year governorship tenure between 1999 and 2007. He was sentenced to 14 years in jail.

However, the three-man panel of the court led by Justice Abdul Aboki, reduced the sentence to 12 years.

He was also asked to pay a fine of N495million.
