Justice Taiwo ordered the convict to make a restitution of the total sum of money back even though less than N3.5m already recovered from him during investigation by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

  • Public officers in Nigeria often betray the trust placed on them by the people. Governors, senators, ministers and other governmental representatives often abuse their duties with corruption. Accountability should be the order of the day in Nigeria, the list of people wanted by EFCC and ICPC for defrauding Nigeria is very long but we must keep believing that some day justice must be served.
