Michael Igbinedion Charged for Scam.

Michael Igbinedion, younger brother of former Edo state governor who used four companies, Gava Corporation Limited, Romrig Nigeria Limited, PML Securities Company Limited and PML Nigeria Limited to launder money was sentenced to 6 years imprisonment with an option of fine of N1million for each of the three counts 79, 80 and 81, for which he was convicted. The charges bothering on money laundering.

But Mr Eboigbodin was not so lucky as he was sentenced to 20 years imprisonment without an option of fine.

It may interest you to know that Michael Igbinedion is younger brother of former Edo state governor, Lucky Igbinedion.

Another person found guitly of the offense was Mr Patrick Eboigbodin. Patrick was said to be an aide to former Governor Lucky Igbinedion. He was dragged before a federal high court in Benin city on an 81 count charge bordering on the twin offense of money laundering . The crime was said to be carried out while Lucky Igbinedion was still governor of Edo state.

Justice A.M Liman delivered the judgement.

Some expert that withnessed the judgement hailed the decision as that will serve as a warning to others who may be nursing the same act to think twice. However, the expert frown at the level and measure of punishment. He said for a person convicted of three counts to the tune of N25bn, but given a 6 years imprisonment with an option of N3m fine does not reflect the true penalty.

He further said that if people know that the consequence of crime is higher than the crime itself, the level in which people take law into their own hands recklessly will be reduced drastically. He therefore call for the review of the lacuna in the law to avoid anarchy.
