    We await the details of the sentencing.

    However, this is heartening news that the judiciary is beginning to complement the prosecutorial efforts of the executive.

    Personally, I hope the sentencing will be commensurately financial and custodial for the persons involved; and sufficiently large for the corporate body without killing the business.

    It’s about time the bill for crime reflects the weight of the crimes committed.

      Yessssssssss, good news indeed. Thanks to Buhari !!..without him, they would have bribed themselves out of their criminality !

      • oh, it’s the ssss again. that’s old news actually. whos buhari? LOL

    Nigeria will be great again.

  • Juliuson

    …When will Boko haram terrorists and their sponsors and those Government officials in Bornu state government house who harbour terrorists in their bedrooms and shield them from arrests be convicted? I really don’t understand this Nigeria. So many abnormal things are happening and people are not asking questions. Why are terrorists not convicted or even prosecuted by the Nigerian state? Why???????????????????

    • Tola

      So the conviction of the subsidy thieves is another abnormality to you? I hope you are not coming with NSA arms thieves’ logic that until all terrorists are convicted the subsidy thieves should be left alone. This is good news. You cannot be destroying the fuel supply system and be making billions without bringing a liter of fuel.

    • LMAO…How many timees are you going to write this? It’s not working for you. Besides, BOKO is done away with , remember? You can’t get your stories or your comments straight.

    • Sharif_Iyal

      Terrorists are not real human beings therefore they didn’t deserve any prosecution, prosecuting a terrorist is considered as wastage of public fund, that is why they just being killed extra-judicially…. as for their sponsors, if with all the revelations on how some people diverted the money meant the fight the terrorist and starved our troops of weapons, in order to give the terrorist a free chance to carry out their terrorism activities freely, and you still looking for their sponsors…. Then you need you are not fully informed,hence, wake-up please, it already down!

      All those fat-belly service chiefs that are being arraigned for sabotaging the fight against the terrorist and their accomplice among the politicians, and, and, and…. may be you are waiting for the day the main culprit (their overall master) will be arraigned and you will start saying your hero is being witch-hunted…., right? Don’t mind, that day will surely come! The major sponsors will be prosecuted.

    This is one of the dividends of the purge in the Judiciary. More convictions and sentencing will sure come

  • Rommel

    During the campaign days,on a campaign ground in Lagos,president Jonathan made this statement and I quote,”we are looking at a situation where we would even close the prisons while our opponents are only interested in jailing people”

    I believe the third defendant was discharged and acquitted for snitching on the other two
