Professor Peter Ogban, a returning officer in the 2019 general elections in Akwa Ibom North-West Senatorial District has been jailed for election fraud.

Ogban, who is a Professor of Soil Science at the University of Calabar (UNICAL) was jailed by a High Court in Akwa Ibom State on Thursday, today.

He was found guilty of fraudulent manipulation of election results, and of publishing and announcing false results.

He was, therefore, sentenced to three years in jail for the offences. Prof Peter Ogban will have 3 years of researching about prison soil ☺😊.

He was charged for manipulating the election results of two local government areas of Akwa Ibom – Oruk Anam and Etim Ekpo.

In a previous court session, Professor Ogban, thinking Buhari and Godswill Akpabio will save him, had told the court how results of the election were falsified to give the All Progressives Congress (APC) an unfair advantage over its main rival, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Godswill Akpabio, the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs was the APC candidate in the election. He was seeking a return to the Senate after he defected from the PDP.

The PDP candidate, Chris Ekpenyong, a former Deputy Governor in Akwa Ibom State, defeated Godswill Akpabio in the election which was gripped by pockets of violence.

Professor Ogban was prosecuted by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in the landmark case.

The University lecturer was in the dock, pleading for mercy from the judge, Justice Augustine Odokwo, who refused to listen to him.
