Senior Advocate, Nwobike Sent To Prison

A Senior Advocate of Nigeria, SAN, Joseph Nwobike, who was earlier convicted has been sentenced to one month in prison.

Nwobike was convicted by the Ikeja Division of the Lagos High Court on Monday.

He was convicted on 12 counts of attempting to pervert justice.

He was sentenced to one month in prison for each of the 12 counts. But because the sentences are to run concurrently, he would spend only one month in prison.

Justice Raliat Adebiyi, however, found the lawyer not guilty on offences of offering gratification to a judicial officer and making false declaration to an officer of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

Nwobike is being prosecuted by the EFCC.
