Deputy Senate President, Omo-Agege was Never Convicted in US – Nigerian Court rules

A lawsuit seeking to sack Deputy Senate President Ovie Omo-Agege on grounds of being convicted in the United States, has been struck out by a Federal High Court in Abuja.

He thereafter ordered the plantiff to pay N1million to Senator Omo-Agege as damages for the lawsuit. Justice Musa added that the conviction which can stop a Nigerian from holding a political office for 10 years is that made by a Nigerian court.
