The court has found former Plateau State governor, Joshua Dariye, guilty of fraud.

Dariye was facing charges over diversion of N1.161 billion while he was in office.

The Federal Capital Territory High Court judge, Adebukola Banjoko, found Dariye guilty of diverting funds to the PDP in the state among other groups.

The counts relate to the diversion of N80 million to the PDP, N100 million to a company, Marine flow and other sums through the All State Bank.

Banjoko had, few weeks ago, found former Taraba governor, Jolly Nyame guilty of misappropriation of public funds and sentenced him to 14 years in jail.

Dariye is currently a senator on the platform of Nigeria’s ruling party, APC, to which he decamped in 2016.

The judge has slated next Tuesday for judgement.
