Supreme Court Upholds Nyame’s Conviction_Ada Nkong

The Supreme Court Friday, upheld the conviction and 12-year imprisonment handed to the former Governor of Taraba State, Reverend Jolly Nyame by the Court of Appeal, Abuja.
Newsannexonline recalls that the Court of Appeal, in a November 16, 2018 judgment upheld Nyame’s conviction and sentencing over his fraudulent conduct while in office as governor.

In a judgment on Friday, a five-man panel of the Supreme Court partially upheld the judgment of the Court of Appeal, but set aside the portion of the judgment which imposed millions of naira fines on the ex-Governor.

Justice Amina Augie, who read the lead judgment, said the Court of Appeal imposed fine without any prompting by either of the parties to the case.
