Civil Servant Bags Jail Term For Leaking Government Documents

Magistrate Court 18, sitting in Abuja has sentenced a civil servant, Aminu Maru, to one year in prison for leaking sensitive government documents.

The court, however, gave Mr. Maru the option of paying a fine of N100,000.

The conviction followed his guilty plea on Tuesday.

Mr. Maru was a staff of the office of Accountant General of the Federation but seconded to the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON).

He was arraigned by the State Security Service for allegedly leaking official government documents to non-civil servants for a fee.
