Dr. John Abebe, the in-law to the former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, has bagged seven years imprisonment for crime related to forgery and laundering.
He was sentenced after it was clearly established after the prosecution proved its case beyond reasonable doubt.
Abebe was first arraigned on July 26, 2018 on a four-count charge of forgery, fabricating evidence, using fabricated evidence and attempt to pervert the course of justice before the Special Offences Court in Ikeja.
An oil company, Statoil Nigeria Limited had on June 22, 2010, accused Dr Abebe of forgery.
Statoil Nigeria Limited had alleged that the defendant forged parts of a Net Profit Interest Agreement (NPIA) dated November 30, 1995, which was drafted by British Petroleum (BP)
