EFCC detains ex-Edo gov, Igbinedion, over N1.6bn fraud

who finished his tenure as governor in 2007 is being grilled at the Abuja headquarters of the EFCC for allegedly diverting public funds to the tune of N1.6 billion.

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

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

The latest invitation was confirmed by the spokesman of the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren who failed to give more details.
