A Federal High Court, Enugu found him guilty and he refunded the N4.3 billion. The case was determined on January 23, 2008. However, the EFCC, last February, 2011 appealed the judgement, asking for stiffer sanctions. This time, Igbinedion will face a N25 billion fraud trial at the Federal High Court in Benin, in what some observers said was politically motivated to whip him into political line
