Mr. Dariye was on Tuesday sentenced to two years in prison for criminal misappropriation and 14 years for criminal breach of trust.

During the hearing, the court ruled that all charges are to run concurrently without an option of fine.

Mr. Dariye is also found guilty bothering on criminal breach of trust, dishonesty, and diversion of funds meant for the ecological needs of Plateau state.

Mr. Dariye whose case is over 10 years was standing trial on a 23 count charge for money laundering allegedly diverting the State’s 1.126 billion Naira ecological funds.

He was arraigned by the EFCC on July 13, 2007, bordering on money laundering and other corruption charges alleged to have belonged to the Plateau State Government.
