Igbinedion Sentenced To 6 Years Imprisonment With An Option Of Fine, While Aide Gets 20 Years With No Option

You read it here yesterday that the brother of former Governor of Edo State, Micheal Igbinedion and his accomplice were yesterday found guilty by an Edo court for money laundering. Well Mr Igbinedion has been sentenced to 6 years imprisonment today but got an option of fine of N1m for each of the three counts 79, 80 and 81, for which he was convicted, while Patrick Eboigbodin, an aide also to Lucky Igbinedion was sentenced to 20 years imprisonment without an option of fine.

  4. Very charismatic man , oh well that don't change the fact that he is a thief and what kind of shitty fine is that ??? Something he will pay before leaving court with the money he budgeted for evening drinks kept in the boot of his vehicle

    1. It just shows there is still no hope for the common man. If you are poor you are on your own

  6. Selective judgement. An Igbinedion got an option of fines while the non-Igbinedion got none. Too bad

  12. Option of fine of N3 million in lieu of 6 years jail time for stealing N25 billion.
    Stealing business is good in Naija.
    No wonder all officials steal.
    Punishment never fits the crime when influential people are involved.
