Senator Jonah Jang Remanded In Prison by siddoggg(m): 1:52pm On May 16
The Plateau State High Court has remanded a former governor of Plateau State, Jonah Jang, in Jos prison.

The court made the decision after it denied an application by Mr Jang’s counsel, Robert Clarks, for his bail following his arraignment by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Wednesday.

Mr Jang, who is currently the senator representing Plateau North district, is facing a 12-count charge of diverting N6.3 billion alongside a former cashier in the office of the Secretary to the State Government, Yusuf Pam.

They were alleged to have committed the offence while Mr Jang was governor of the state.

After pleading not guilty to the charges; their counsel, Mr Clarks, applied for their bail.

But prosecution counsel, Rotimi Jacobs, opposed the application, saying the accused, particularly Mr Jang, has tough credentials as a three-time governor, former Nigerian military general and serving senator, and may therefore intimidate prosecution witnesses if given bail.

He said granting them bail will not be in the best interest of justice.

The trial judge, Daniel Longji, thereafter ruled that the accused persons be remanded at the Jos Prisons till the next sitting of the court on Thursday May 24.

Earlier on Wednesday, the court struck out charges filed by the Independent Corruption Practice and other related offensive Commission (ICPC) against Mr Jang.

This was after counsel to ICPC, Adeshina Raheem, told the court that the commission was withdrawing its case to avoid duplication of charges against the former governor.

Mr Jang has been in the custody of the EFCC since Monday last week.

Yet, they say we are not fighting corruption.

Some say the fight is one-sided, not that those being prosecuted are not corrupt o.

I ask: if it's correct that PDP ruled for 16 years, does it not make sense that 99% of the looters are their members?

Yeye wailing haters supporting their oppressors.

Is it that APC is moving fast to have those that could influence elections results behind bars before 2019?

This people don't mean well for anyone. Once they've eaten to their satisfaction, they're done.

Was he not the governor during the late 2000's when Plateau was burning?

Yet, he comfortably diverted such money, even with the full knowledge of the poverty in his state.

He is MAD.

Talking of mad, I have also have two mad iPhone 6s for sale.

Price is 75k each (the phone sells for 95k).

I keep reiterating that Buhari has not disappointed me in this aspect.

He may be a lousy talker,old fashioned.. just name it but I voted for him to curb corruption and he is doing just that.
