Ohmygod

Poor reporting. It’s a big omission not to give the effective date of the Sentence. If he were sentenced to serve 7 years with effect from 2014, how many years would he spend in prison?
Nigerian journalists keep missing the point, the dates are a very important aspect of reports on criminal trials.
