Ex-NDLEA Boss Bello Lafiaji Jailed

















Former Chairman of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, Bello Lafiaji, and his personal assistant, Usman Amali, were this morning sentenced to 16 years imprisonment by a Lagos, Nigeria, High Court for corrupt enrichment while in office.

Lafiaji will spend the next four years behind bars while Amali will spend three years as the sentences are to run concurrently.

The two convicts were arraigned in 2008 on a seven-count charge of conspiracy, using their positions to corruptly enrich themselves and receiving money before performing their lawful duties were convicted on six out of the seven counts.

The sign of good things to come. I hope this does not stop with this man, but all elected officers of govt parastatals should be made to give account of their tenures. The bane of Nigeria is lack of accountability by public officers. We hail this judgement and ask for more.
