  1. Pay N15m as restitution, balance is N13m. That amount is worth going to jail for six months. To me, the criminal won the case.

    • You are damn right @ Methu. The judgement makes no sense at all. That means keeping half of that money and since they are going to prorate his sentencing, that means he is not going to serve any jail time apart from the time he already spent. I suspect this Judge. He must have cut his own share of the deal. Six months for #28,000,000.00. Other criminal may want to go for this.

  2. Perhaps the allegations were based on stealing #28million, but prosecution was able to prove stealing of#15m. If that is the case the judge should not be blamed.

  3. Okay, now I get it. At first I thought there was error in calculating what he owes back but now I see the judge considered inflation. So this will be the first court since the Greek time to consider inflation. Only in Nigeria

  4. It is easier to sentence people like this very fast leaving behind those hard core thieves in government who have billions of dollars in their accounts without any prosecution.
