EFCC Quizes Ex-Edo Gov Igbinedion




The Economic and financial crimes commission quizzed ex-Edo Gov, Lucky Igbinedion, over N1.6bn fraud.


Jameela News reports that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has grilled the former Governor of Edo State, Southern Nigeria, Lucky Igbinedion at the EFCC headquarters, Abuja, FCT for allegedly diverting public funds to the tune of N1.6 billion.

A loan obtained by the Edo State government during his tenure is said to have been diverted to a company in which he has an interest.


Igbinedion was prosecuted in 2008 by the EFCC and convicted of embezzling N2.9 billion belonging to the State.

He was sentenced to six months imprisonment after he pleaded guilty to one count which was pruned from 191 charges.

Jameela News gathered that the latest invitation was confirmed by the spokesman of the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren “who failed to give more details.”
