BREAKING NEWS: Court Convicts INEC Officials In Diezani Bribe Case

The Federal High Court in Lagos on Thursday convicted a former Independent National Electoral Commission ( INEC ) Administrative Secretary in Kwara State Mr Christian Nwosu.

Justice Mohammed Idris found him guilty of laundering N264million.

“I find that the prosecution has proved the case beyond reasonable doubt in the manner required by law.

“I, therefore, find the first and second defendants guilty as charged,” the judge said.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) re-arraigned Nwosu allegedly accepting gratification from former Minister of Petroleum Resources Mrs Diezani Alison-Madueke (“still at large”).

He was re-arraigned along with Tijani Bashir before Justice Idris.

They were charged with another INEC official Yisa Adedoyin, who pleaded guilty to the offence and was convicted following a plea bargain.

Nwosu had initially pleaded guilty to receiving N30million bribe from Mrs Alison-Madueke to rig the 2015 general election results, but he changed his plea to not guilty.

Justice Idris has adjourned sentencing until Friday by 12noon to enable Nwosu to be present.
