By Chinenye Festus:-
A Magistrate Court in Wuse Zone Area of Abuja has sentenced Victor Mela to one-month imprisonment.
The magistrate court had found the lawmaker guilty of lying under oath while filling the CD001 INEC form prior to the 2019 elections.
Mela represents Billiri/Balanga federal constituency, Gombe State at the House of Representatives.
Mela was said to have lied under oath while filling INEC form before the 2019 general election but he was, however, given an option of fine as his conviction followed the prosecution by the police in Abuja.
Premium Times reported that the lawmaker denied being a citizen of another country after having sworn to an affidavit thrice, while he has a British passport.
