The Supreme Court has affirmed the six years imprisonment imposed on a former Federal Director of Pensions, John Yakubu, and also ordered him to refund the sum of twenty-two point nine billion naira to the Federal Government.

The twenty-two point nine billion naira was part of the police pension fund he admitted before a High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, to have been misappropriated.

In a judgment, Justice Tijjani Abubakar upheld the decision of the Court of Appeal which in 2018 sent him to six years imprisonment in addition to the refund of the sum.

Justice Abubakar said that the appeal of the former federal pension director seeking to set aside the six years jail term against him was frivolous and devoid of merit.
