Tthe senator was on 12 June sentenced to 16 years in prison by a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital.

Justice Adebukola Banjoko, who gave the ruling, held that the former governor would serve a two-year and a 14-year jail terms concurrently but did not give him an option of a fine.

The EFCC (Economic and Financial Crimes Commission) charged Dariye with money laundering in 2007. He was accused of diverting N1.126bn from the Plateau government’s ecological funds through an account, Ebenezer Reitner Ventures, an unregistered company, he operated.

In her ruling, Justice Banjoko had said:

“I can’t imagine a brazen act of looting as in this case.”

“I welled up while reading (the judgement) thinking of the victims, it is a litany of woes. They were adults making rational choices. More importantly, I think what touches me the most, your family, they are victims.

“Having found the defendant guilty of these counts of criminal breach trust and criminal appropriation, the court sentences you to two years for criminal breach of trust and 14 years for criminal appropriation.”
