Alleged N6.3bn loot: Court sends ex-gov Jang to prison

Justice Daniel Longji of the Jos High Court has remanded former governor of Plateau State, Jonah David Jang to prison custody.
Prior to that, Justice Longji had denied a bail application by Jang through his lawyer Robert Clarke (SAN) and adjourned to Thursday 24th May for a bench ruling on bail.

Jang was arraigned on a 12 count charge of alleged corruption and misappropriation of N6.3 billion before he vacated office.
The now Senator representing Plateau North was arraigned alongside Yusuf Pam, a one-time cashier in the office of the Secretary to the State Government who allegedly embezzled N11million.

When the charges were read, Jang and Pam pleaded not guilty.
