The Labour Party chieftain was found guilty for the event that took place under the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP. He was sentenced to two and a half years in prison.

Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu showed leniency when she gave Okupe an option of N500,000 fine on each of the 26 count charges, which amounted to N13m.
