Court Sentences Ex-Minister Sarah Ochekpe, Two Others For Money Laundering

A Federal High Court sitting in Jos has sentenced Former Minister of Water Resources Sarah Ochekpe and two others to three years imprisonment each for money laundry with an option of a N1million fine on each count.

The judgment was delivered on Tuesday by Justice Haruna Kurya after finding the trio Sarah Ochekpe, Raymond Dabo, and Leo Sunday Jitung guilty on two counts out of the three filed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

However, the three of them were released after payment of the N 1million option of fine.

Ochekpe, who served as Minister under former President Goodluck Jonathan, was sentenced alongside a former chairman of the People Democratic Party in Plateau state, Raymond Dabo, and the Plateau State Coordinator of Jonathan Campaign Organization, Leo-Sunday Jitong.

The three accused persons had been standing trial since 2018 in a case of money laundering and conspiracy brought against them by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission amounting to over N450 million.
