The Abuja Division of the Court of Appeal has reduced the 14-year imprisonment imposed by the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja on a former Governor of Taraba State, Jolly Nyame, earlier this year, to 12 years.
The Justice Abdul Aboki-led three-man panel of the Court of Appeal on Friday in addition to the 12-year sentence, also imposed a fine of about N600m on the convict, a fine that the lower court had omitted while dispensing the earlier sentence.
Nyame was convicted and sentenced in a judgment given on May 30 this year by Justice Adebukola Banjoko of the High Court of the FCT, Abuja.
He was convicted on offences of criminal misappropriation, criminal breach of trust, receiving gratification, among others, estimated at N1.64billion
