A Magistrate Court in Wuse, Zone 6, has sentenced a member of the House of Representatives, Victor Mela, to one-month imprisonment.
Mela, who represents Billiri/Balanga Federal Constituency, was, however, given an option of fine.
The lawmaker was convicted for lying under oath while giving information to the Independent National Electoral Commission in a form he filled for the 2019 election that he won.
He had claimed in the CD001 INEC form that he did not have dual citizenship, even though he possesses a British passport.
The lawmaker was arraigned by the FCT Police after a criminal complaint filed by Ali Isa JC, his main opponent in last year’s election.
