Aminu Tafida, a son of the Special Adviser on Social Investments to the Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, and two others, have been sentenced to four years and six months’ imprisonment. The other convicts are Umar Abubakar and Masaud Gidado.
The three men were also handed an option of N400,000 fine each, including compensation for the circulation of an 18-second nude video, in a case that suffered several adjournments.
While delivering judgment in the case, which was characterised by series of adjournments, Magistrate Shu’aibu said the prosecuting counsel has proven his case beyond any reasonable doubts and as such the three accused persons were convicted for the very offenses put forward before them. Reacting to the development, both the prosecutor, ASP Simon Sule, and the complainant, said they were satisfied with the judgement.
