Nigerian court sentences two Chinese nationals to three years in prison on corruption charges

Abuja: A Nigerian court has sentenced two Chinese nationals to three years in prison for alleged corruption charges.

They were identified as Meng Wei Kun and Xu Kuai.

Daily Trust reported the convicts were earlier arraigned before the Federal High Court sitting in Sokoto, on a 3- Count charge bordering on Conspiracy, Money Laundering and attempted bribery.

The convicts were said to have offered a N50 million bribe to officials of the Sokoto Zonal Command of the EFCC.

The lower court however, discharged and acquitted them of the said charges which necessitated an appeal by the anti-graft agency, the news portal reported.

Delivering judgment on Friday, Justice Abubakar Mahmud Talba, held that the respondents tried to frustrate the Appeal through maneuverings, stating that “Gone are the days of technicalities in Law”.

He emphasised that “Court’s must allow case’s to be heard on merits”.
