CRIME NEWS: American Lawmaker, Jennings Jefferson was Jailed for Bribing Atiku Abubakar

He was convicted on a 13 count charge bordering on money laundering, bribery, and corruption. Of those convictions there was hard evidence that he gave Atiku Abubakar the then Vice President of Nigeria
$500,000 to be able to secure a contract for American company iGate LLC, who had bribed him with $400,000 to secure contracts in Nigeria and Ghana, given his connections in those countries exchange for 10% shareholding in the company.
Through secret FBI recordings, he estimated the company was going to make about $200 million a year after five years operations, giving him a $20million a year kickback from stocks in the company. The FBI found $90,000 cash hidden in his Freezer. The US. Attorney-General at a speech announcing his sentencing said "This ruling shows that America is a country of laws, that even a high ranking Congressman is not spared."
Jefferson was sentenced to 1year on each count with a total of 13 year sentence. He has currently served 7 years so far.
Meanwhile Atiku Abubukar his Nigerian counterpart, has gone on to build a University, enrich himself more, run for president, and even sponsor a current President to office. In summary, while Congressman Jefferson rots in jail for the late stages of his life, his counterpart in Nigeria, flies private jet, tweets to his numerous kids, and form "elderstatesman".
