Jolly Nyame

The Supreme Court of Nigeria on Friday affirmed the conviction of former Taraba State Governor, Jolly Nyame.

Prestige Online recalls that the Court of Appeal, Abuja, had sentenced the ex-governor to 12-years imprisonment.

A five-man panel of the Supreme Court on Friday partially upheld the ruling of the Appellate court, but set aside the portion of the judgment which imposed millions of naira fines on Nyame.

Reading the judgement, Justice Amina Augie said the lower court imposed fine without any prompting by either of the parties to the case.
