Update: Contrary to expectations, the ex-Governor will spend only 2 years in jail.

Each of the six charges that Alamieyeseigha was found guilty of carries two years imprisonment. They are, however, to run concurrently from the day his of arrest ( i.e. December 9, 2005).

Since one year prison term is about nine months, the former governor will regain his freedom in a couple of weeks.

The court also ordered the forfeiture of Alamieyeseigha’s property at V&A Waterfront, Cape Town, South Africa; one situated at 2, Marscibit Street, Ishaku Rabiu Estate, Off Aminu Kano Crescent, Wuse II, Abuja; property at 34, Amazon Street, Maitama, Abuja, N1 billion worth of shares in former Bond Bank; $160,000 in account number 005482562491 with an American bank; and N105million in account number 2010062850006 with former Bond Bank.

Back to your question:

The man actually pleaded guilty and that means he did what he was accused of. However, the trend of justice globally is that of “correcting” offenders instead of “punishing” them. Demonstration of remorse by offenders is acceptable as part of the corrective process.
