Sen. Joshua Dariye.

Former governor of Plateau State, Chief Joshua Dariye who is now a senator representing his district in Plateau state, central Nigeria has been sentenced to a jail term of 14 years for criminal breach of trust and misappropriating the state’s share of Ecological fund on which he got two years.
The terms are to run concurrently.

After a judgment that lasted about 8 hours, Justice Adebukola Banjoko sends Dariye to jail and notes that Dariye was in fact richer than his state, and “there should be no compromise to corruption by whatever shade or colour, rich or poor”.
