N6.2bn Fraud: Court Adjourns Jonah Jang’s Case For Judgment


Justice C.L Dabup of the Plateau State High Court sitting in Jos, has adjourned the  ongoing trial of a former governor of Plateau State, Senator Jonah David Jang and a former cashier in the Office of the Secretary to the State Government (OSSG), Yusuf Pam, for judgment.

The court made the adjournment on Thursday, July 14, 2022 after the adoption of final written addresses by both the prosecution and defence counsel. 

Jang and Pam are facing trial for alleged criminal breach of trust and misappropriation of Plateau State funds to the tune of N6.3 billion.

At the resumed hearing of the case on Thursday, Prosecution counsel, Rotimi Jacobs, SAN, urged the court to consider the evidence of all the fourteen (14) witnesses before it, especially the evidence of Prosecution Witness 5, PW5, which supported the confessional statement of the second defendant. 

Jacobs submitted that the required proof is not “proof beyond all shadow of doubt”.
