Jonah Jang, former Govern of Plateau State, was on Wednesday arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) before Justice Daniel Longji of the Plateau State High Court sitting in Jos on a 12-count charge bordering on misappropriation of funds to the tune of N6.3billion.

Jang, a serving senator, allegedly embezzled special funds released to the state by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), two months to the end of his governorship tenure in 2015. Specifically, Jang allegedly pocketed N2billion released by the CBN for disbursement to small and medium enterprises in the state under the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Development Funds (MSMEDF) just a month before the expiration of his tenure in April 2015.


He was also said to have abused his office by collecting money to the tune of N4.3billion from the state coffers through the cashier of the Office of the Secretary to the State Government, Yusuf Gyang Pam. Jang was docked alongside Pam, who was also accused of using his office for personal enrichment to the tune of N11.5million.

Justice Longji thereafter ordered the remand of the defendants in prison custody, and adjourned to May 24, 2018 for hearing of the bail application.

*Bail for what?He is without handcuffs and is being remanded...in the next post,the guy is in handcuffs and gets jail term so long,you can as well conclude he has been killed already......impartiality!!!
