JUST IN: House of Reps Member Sentenced To Prison For Lying Under Oath

A Magistrate Court in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja, has sentenced Victor Mela, a member of the House of Representatives, to one-month in prison for perjury.

Mela, who represents Billiri/Balanga federal constituency of Gombe state, was convicted for lying under oath in the CD001 INEC form he completed ahead of the 2019 election.

He claimed he did not have dual citizenship while possessing a British passport which shows he is a citizen of Britain.
He swore to an affidavit thrice, denying citizenship of another country while he has a British passport.

His conviction follows prosecution by the police in Abuja. The court, however, gave him an option fine.

    The next time Someone said a weblog, Lets hope that this doesnt disappoint me up to this place. Get real, Yes, it was my method to read, but I just thought youd have some thing fascinating to mention. All I hear is really a number of whining about something that you could fix in case you werent too busy interested in attention.
