Court sentences top lawyer, Joseph Nwobike (SAN) to one month in prison for bribery

Lagos State High Court in Ikeja has sentenced a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Joseph Nwobike, to one month’s imprisonment for perversion of the course of justice.

The court convicted Nwobike of 12 counts bordering on the offence, sentenced him to one month imprisonment on each of the 12 counts but said the sentences would run concurrently.

Justice Raliat Adebiyi, who pronounced the verdict on Monday morning, said the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission proved beyond reasonable doubts that the SAN was in constant communication with court officials to influence the assignment of his cases to his preferred judges.
