The Court of Appeal in Abuja has reduced the 14 years sentence against former governor of Plateau State, Senator Joshua Dariye to 10 years.

The presiding judge, Justice Stephen Adah on Friday reduced the charges in the counts to 10 years, while the terms with two years are reduced to one year each. The sentences are to run concurrently.

The judge however quashed the governor’s conviction in two of the 15-counts charges against the ex-governer, who is already serving a jail term at the Kuje Prisons in Abuja.
