Former Adamawa governor Ngilari sentenced to 5 years in prison

Former Governor of Adamawa state, Bala James Ngilari has been convicted and jailed by an High Court in Yola, Adamawa State.

He was sentenced to five years in prison by Justice Nathan Musa, without option of a fine.

In his ruling, Justice Nathan Musa found the former governor guilty of four charges, and discharged him on one, which bordered on conspiracy.

The EFCC had charged Ngilari for violation of procurement laws in the award of contract of N167m to one El-Yadi Motors Limited for supply of 24 units of Toyota Corolla vehicles.
