Former Governor of Plateau State and serving senator, Joshua Dariye wept today, after a High Court in Abuja, sentenced him to 14 years’ imprisonment on charges of criminal breach of trust and misappropriation of over N1.16bn belonging to the state.

 

“Be merciful. You are a Christian, your name is Jacob,” Mr Dariye had told the judge before his sentencing.

Justice Adebukola Banjoko of the Federal Capital Territory High Court today found him guilty of diverting N1.162 billion state ecological funds while he was governor between 1999 and 2007. He was first arraigned on a 23-count charge for the offence in 2007.

The presiding judge sentenced him to two years in prison for criminal breach of trust and 14 years for criminal misappropriation of funds.

The sentences are to run concurrently. The court gave no option of fine.

Mr Dariye is currently the senator representing Plateau West.

Dariye defected from PDP to APC in September 2016.
