Mela, who is representing Billiri/Balanga federal constituency of Gombe state, was found guilty of lying under oath in the CD001 INEC form he submitted ahead of the 2019 election.
A member of the House of Representatives, Victor Mela, has been sentenced to one-month imprisonment by a Magistrate Court in Wuse, Zone 6, on Friday for lying under oath.
He claimed he did not have dual citizenship while possessing a British passport which shows he is a citizen of Britain.
However, the Magistrate Court gave Mela an option of fine.
Mela was elected to the House of Representatives in 2019 and is vice-chairman of the solid minerals committee.
