The law is finally catching up with all kinds of criminal intent in Nigeria. This report about the sentencing of a book pirate is very much welcome. Can we do the same to the Nigerian political thieves?

The Nigerian Copyright Commission on January 29, 2018, secured judgment against a book pirate, Anthony Okojie, at the Federal High Court, Lagos.

The trial judge, Justice Kuya, pronounced the accused person guilty and sentenced him to two years imprisonment at the federal prison without any option of fine.

Mr. Okojie’s sentence is to commence from the day of his arrest.
