House of Representatives Member, Mr. Victor Mela Danzaria has been sentenced to one month imprisonment by an Abuja Magistrate Court.
Mela who represents the Billiri/Balanga Federal Constituency from Gombe State, was on Friday, found guilty of lying about his citizenship.
A Magistrate Court in Wuse Zone 6 delivered the verdict to remand the lawmaker in prison for a month, which it said can be averted by option of a fine.
He was found guilty of lying in a form he filled and submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) towards the 2019 general elections.
Mela, 47, it was gathered, has a British passport.
