INEC officials bag seven years imprisonment for receiving bribes in 2015 Election

Two officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) will be spending the next seven years in prison after they were found guilty of receiving bribes to compromise the 2015 elections.

The culprits identified as Christian Nwosu and Tijani Bashir were convicted of benefiting from a sum of $115.01m that Diezani Alison-Madueke, former Minister of Petroleum Resources, paid to several people towards compromising the 2015 general election.

Justice Mohammed Idriss gave the order, on Friday, after both men were found guilty of offences bordering on money laundering to the tune of N265 million.
