British Nigerian MP Fiona Onasanya & Brother Jailed For Lying To Avoid Speeding Ticket
Embattled British Nigerian MP, Fiona Onasanya has been jailed.
She received a 3 months sentence yesterday for lying to escape getting a speeding ticket.
According to The Guardian, Fiona and her brother Festus Onasanya were given 3 months and 10 months sentences respectively yesterday at the Old Bailey Court in London.
Birmingham Mail reported that Fiona was texting and driving at 41 mph on the 27th of July 2017 in a 30 mph zone.
When a speeding ticket was sent to her, she reportedly connived with her brother to avoid paying a fine.
While delivering his judgement at Old Bailey Court yesterday, Justice Stuart-Smith said;
“It’s a tragedy that you have found yourselves here and in this predicament, but it’s a tragedy that you have brought on yourselves.”
