Nigerian Court SenteNces Politician To 154 Years Jail Term For Corruption

A court in Nigeria has sentenced a former local MP to 154 years in jail for corruption and money laundering.

Gabriel Daudu, from central Kogi State, was found guilty of 77 charges, Nigeria's anti-corruption body says.

But the judge ruled that the sentences would run concurrently, meaning Dauda will only spend two years in jail.

Corruption is endemic in Nigeria and so far the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has only managed to secure a handful of convictions.

President Muhammadu Buhari won elections last year, promising to tackle the problem.
