Nigeria’s ex-oppn spokesman jailed seven years for graft

Abuja: A Nigerian court on Tuesday sentenced a former spokesman of the country’s main opposition party to seven years in prison after convicting him of corruption and money laundering.
Judge Okon Abang of the federal high court in the capital Abuja pronounced Olisa Metuh guilty of all seven charges put to him by Nigeria’s anti-graft agency, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
“This case is a lesson to others,” the judge said. (AFP)
