The embattled former Governor of Edo State, Lucky Igbinedion, may no longer enter the US, according to sources in Washington, DC.
A source revealed that the American consular authorities had written to Mr. Igbinedion to tell him that he was no longer welcome in the US.
Another source indicated that the former governor, who has been convicted for corrupt practices shortly after his governorship term, had multiple entry visas to the US. However, he has received a letter revoking his visa.
Mr. Igbinedion was a two-term governor in Edo State where he looted the treasury mindlessly, according to documents gathered by the EFCC.
According to Sahara Reporters, the US government is currently reviewing the files of some of Nigeria’s current and former government officials and will deny them visas once they are considered undesirable on account of their engagement in corruption.
