Nigerian criminals that include coup plotters and treasury looters were granted a State pardon for their crimes by the Council of State. This council advises the executive in policy making. The criminals were from all parts of the Nigerian Federation..
Now you can see the whole Nigerian political class are criminals pardoning themselves.
Former Chief of General Staff, Oladipo Diya and Former Chief of Staff Supreme Military Concil, and brother of the late President, Major General Shehu Musa Yar’adua received a State Pardon from the National Council of State, this afternoon, a source who attended the meeting has revealed to Felastory

Our source revealed to us that the Council of State, which is comprised of the President, Vice President, all state governors, former Presidents, the Chief Justice of the Federation, the Senate President and Speaker, amongst others, unanimously approved the list of those pardoned today.
The Council of State meeting however was not without its drama as another list which had names of hose awaiting trial was smuggled in for discussion. The Council however rejected the list and asked that it be sent back to the duo of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation and the Minister of the Interior.
Sources told us that the unjust trial and conviction of Diya and Yar’adua was the basis of their pardon while Alamieyeseigha was considered because apart from serving his sentence he has devoted his life to travelling amongst Niger Delta communities facilitating the peace.
