The US Department of State may have barred the former governor of Edo state, Mr. Lucky Igbinedion from, entering the United States of America because of money laundering.
According to an online portal, Sahara Reporters, the American consular authorities had written to Igbinedion to tell him that he was no longer welcome in the US.
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 and has received a letter that notified him of the revocation of his visa.
Igbinedion was a two-term governor in Edo State where he looted the treasury mindlessly, according to documents gathered by the EFCC.
Our source in Washington, DC disclosed that the US government was reviewing the files of some of Nigeria's current and former government officials and will deny them visas once they are deemed undesirable on account of their engagement in corruption.
Efforts by LEADERSHIP SUNDAY to get reaction from Igbinedion proved abortive as he did not respond to calls put across to his phone as at press time.
