Court Rules That Former Governor Jang Has A Case to Answer Over Alleged N6.32b Fraud

A former governor of Plateau State, Jonah Jang on Monday January 6,2020 lost his bid to stop his corruption trial ....

 Justice Daniel Longji of Plateau State High Court, Jos ruled that the ex- governor (now a senator) and a cashier in the Office of the Secretary to the State Government (OSSG), Yusuf Pam have a case to answer in the corruption charges brought against them by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, to the tune of N6.32billion.

The court had on November 18, 2019 given the defence, 14 days to file its no case submission on the matter, and for the prosecution to respond within 10 days of service. Ruling on the no case submission was however deferred on December 23, 2019 due to a late service of the notice by the defence on the prosecution.

But delivering his ruling today, December 31, 2019, Justice Longji stated that the defendants have a case to answer, particularly on the funds for Small and Medium Enterprises, given to the state by the Central Bank of Nigeria CBN, and that of the State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) which were allegedly diverted by the defendants.

The defendants are being prosecuted on a 17-count amended charge corruption and misappropriation of funds.


  1. It’s very sad that all our state Governors decide to divert and convert money meant for education and all that to their own personal use. Is there a certain type of water our leaders drink? Once they get elected, they suddenly develop amnesia and rule for four or eight years without doing absolutely nothing. How could one person be so greedy to steal such huge amounts. Just to remodel and equip schools and hospitals is a huge problem. They need to lick these thieves up and throw the keys away.

  2. 1st going down this 2020. Sebi them talk say Na 4 serving Govs go go prison

  3. until he is convicted if guilty...then i will know justice has been upheld
