A Magistrate sitting in Lokoja delivered its judgment yesterday, 22/2/18, in the case wherein a driver in the convoy of former Governor of Kogi State, Capt. Idris Wada was charged for causing death of Prof. Festus Iyayi by negligent driving along Lokoja-Abuja Road in 2015. The Magistrate held that the prosecution proved its case beyond reasonable doubt and therefore convicted the Defendant. However, the Magistrate adjourned the matter to today being 23/2/18 for sentencing. During the sentencing proceedings, the Magistrate stated that the law under which the Defendant was charged prescribed a punishment of 7 years imprisonment without an option of fine. In the circumstances, according to the Magistrate, he could not do otherwise as his hands were tied. Accordingly, the Defendant was sentenced to 7 years imprisonment which term is to be served at the Koton-Karfe Prison in Kogi State.
