Michael Igbinedion, younger brother of former Edo state governor, Lucky Igbinedion was today sentenced to 6 years imprisonment for charges bothering on money laundering. Michael, alongside one Mr Patrick Eboigbodin, an aide to former Governor Lucky Igbinedion were dragged before a federal high court in Benin city on an 81 count charge bordering on money laundering said to be carried out while Lucky Igbinedion was still governor of Edo state.

Delivering his judgement, Justice A.M Liman sentenced Michael Igbinedion 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. Mr Eboigbodin was sentenced to 20 years imprisonment without an option of fine.


The accused used four companies, Gava Corporation Limited, Romrig Nigeria Limited, PML Securities Company Limited and PML Nigeria Limited to launder money.

You have said it all, Nigeria has to start from the bottom, our Justices system is currupt, the poor are paying the price, while the rich get away with it, Nigeria constitution needs to amended, our leaders has put in us, the habit to be currupt that is while u see Nigerians committing crimes every were in the world, charity begins at home, u cant give what u dont have, we are too bless to be more than Saudi Arabia, the most populated black nation in the world, bless with vibrate youth with pride, this is not the best we have to provide to the black community, am ashamed of our leaders, that steal without prudence...let join hands and build a this nation together to eradicate corruption,and improved in security no room for corruption, many Nigerians are creatives and hard working, focus on the youth, gives us our right to know what justices is, we are bless with everything, but we have nothing, God bless Nigeria God bless our Nation..paces

Corruption runs in the family. They need Holy Ghost Cleanings. It's a shame how Our judicial system apply SELECTIVE JUDICIAL SYSTEM when handling cases. I read sometimes last week how a lady was sentenced to about 360 years for stealing from her employer about 2 million or more naira. Now compare both crimes and deduce your conclusion from our judicial system?  I think the higher you steal from the public coffer, the lower the years you'll spend in prison, while the lower you steal the more u'll be jailed for a longer time. The system stinks!!!

MY FELLOW NIGERIANS........

HERE WE GO AGAIN.........

THE MERRY GO ROUND HAS STARTED UP AGAIN.......

THE JUSTICE SYSTEM MUST BE OVERHAULED..........

IF THIS WAS A COMMON MAN, HE WOULD SPEND THE REST OF HIS LIFE IN JAIL.......

BUT BECAUSE YOU ARE RICH, YOU CAN BUY YOUR OWN JUSTICE.........

THE NIGERIAN JUSTICE SYSTEM IS CORRUPT............

I HOPE GENERAL BUHARI TAKES A CRITICAL LOOK AT OUR LEGAL SYSTEM AND ITS ENDEMIC FAVORITISM........

CORNER CORNER, MAGO MAGO........

ONE RULE FOR THE RICH, AND ANOTHER FOR THE POOR........
