James Ibori
By SaharaReporters, New York

The former governor of Delta state, James Ibori, today appeared at the Southwark Crown court via video link from Wandsworth Prison in London to make a plea.

Ibori faces 25 counts of money laundering, fraud and theft in London after he was successfully extradited from the United Arab Emirates and flown to London this month.
 
Mr. Ibori’s failure to appear in person in court was said to be on account of security concerns. The hearing lasted only a few minutes.  At the instance of the prosecution, it was adjourned till June 24.

IBORI MUST DIE

IBORI MUST DIE

Free Ibori now now now,stupid Nigeria govt allowed UK

I am from Delta State Nig,Chief Ibori made us today.What about IBB etc Nigerians ?

Like father like son.

It is a shame that Nigeria was seen as one of the most respected in the third world, is allowed to be look down upon by all these disgruntle elements.
The good thing about it is that Ibori's trial is not taking place in Nigeria. This is London where justice delayed is not denied. And if the so call Ibori happens to finish with his case, which I so mush believe he can never survive, his sucessor should not be left out. This is , like father like son. Even his friend's case should be reviewed. That one did not finish Edo State, he placed the STATE in an unconcious situation. But thank God for the life of the present Governor, even if he is shopping, we are seeing what he is doing in the STATE.
I love Ibori, but he will never survive this mess because his unfinished assignment was transfered to Uduanghan who will later join him. Ibori, your time has come.

will be ok

No matter what, Ibori did well for Delta state.the fight against corruption is segregated along political lines, wat about Odili, Tinubu n others...He remains, evendo i hate corruption, my best Governor.

ALIBABA and The Forty Thieves

Ibori and Uduaghan are the Ali Baba and the forty thieves. They have planned to enslave the Deltans, even though we are rich in crude oil. Their dynasty have vowed to plunge the rich oil state into finacial quagmire. They are like the demons of the land. Until, they are cast out they will continue to torment the inhabitants of the land. They need to be kicked out; so that God's people can be free.

Rasta shut your mouth, go

Rasta shut your mouth, go wash your dada wentin Ibori do for you? When TJ dey chop you dey suffer after them deport you from Yankee Nor go show your face for video again. You yab sha fuck fuck nor be small

U foolish cow

Wetin ibori do 4 delta state wich gov doer u foolish goat, next time no open ur mouth dey talk like moron, idiot

Ibori & Okowa

ibori, just own up and serve the appropriate terms. The heavenlies will never forget the evil you and your crony okowa committed against the people of delta state. In Delta North, you assholes, stole billions of money belonging to Delta state under the guise of supplying pipe borne water to the people. Okowa laid empty pipes and you shared the loot.All we see today is death arising from infections from water-borne diseases. your time is up.

Between 2 bad Cases

Dont blame those who says Ibori tried for Delta State, between two bad Gov. Ibori beats Uduaghan Gov. hands down...statistically Ibori Gov. was far better than Uduaghan's

Foolish man

How dare u say everyone knows ibori tried for delta state?U must be very foolish in thinking the way you do and writing up stuff like that above.Let him face d law.He killed delta state for sure and he must pay.We shouldnt take sides in matters like this when its something that has to do wit dealign wit currupt politicians.Others will follow of course,its just a matter of time.Gradually d hands of d law will catch up wit all of them.Most of them are even scared of visiting the UK now.Maybe you were one of hsi beneficiaries then thats why u say such rubbish.I advise u keep quiet cos am a true deltan and i know the gross scams and curruption that man perpetuated here in the state.

suffer

ibori think's that london is like Nigerian where he get what he want with our money let him suffer and your brother uduaghan is coming to be wit you.

let him that has ear let him hear

When ibori was in power, he felt he had everything in his disposal. He was deceived by political bishops and pastors. Where is he now? How i wish Uduaghan will learn from this. Let uduaghan know this that the feet of those who carried ibori to london are very much around the corner to carry him also.

may god see u thru

i want to thank you for your encouragement to ibori, but know this that the feet of those who carried ibori to london are very much around to also carry uduaghan to london for trial.

Ibori is the King

You are very silly. Ibori is the governor that Delta state has ever produced

its over for ibori

Iboris sister was found guilty and sentence to 5 years in prison same thing with his wife too….so who is ibori? He is a thief and no matter what I no his jail term is waiting for him….for those fools that are singing praises For him calling worthless name I belt and promise you all that ibori will never get out of these trial or bribe his way out or you think the western world judiciary is as corrupt as Nigeria judiciary,,,,,,,,,,, the answer is NO! western world judiciary is more transparent . ibory has no card to play again its over for him.

May God see you though this hard time.

Chief Ibori,just don't worry at all,no problem is so big that our God Almighty cannot solve, just have faith and hold your heart.There are so many great men like you who have passed through this road,yet they survived it,so be steadfast,it will be over someday and your enemies and friends will come and dance with once again,just believe in God.
And for those who want dead will die before he comes back.For Jesus said to them 'let he who have not committed any sin cast the first stone'.Now you all are casting stone,forgetting you or your brothers or your friends eat or benefited in one way or the order from Ibori you are crucifying and telling the present Roman's to kill for you.God is watching us o,your judgment day is also coming soon.If you like you abuse me,i don't care,Mr big mouth.

He has not fallen yet

He Ibori is not yet fallen. If he be the Odidigbodigbo of Africa of which is now the Odidigbodigbo of the whole world, he will certainly buy his way out of England.

Shame on Nigeria Judiciary

The British Crown court has not been sufficiently bold enough to try Ibori. This is very clear if not i see no reason why Ibori will not appear in court putting security forward as an excuse and it was accepted by the court. That is a mess all together, and as such i do not see any difference or reason to say shame on Nigeria Judiciary in Crown Court can still pepertuate this nature of evil. If the Judge can appear in court, why would Ibori put insecurity forward as an excuse to avoid appearance in court? I am getting sick of the whole system worldwide, and I would conclude that Ibori is an international hero. All hay to Ibori the formal odidigbodigbo of Africa, and the current Odidigbodigbo of the whole world. Ibori, you are too much. Do not allow the insecure England territory to stop you from enjoying your loots from Delta State. Enjoy, plea bargain or sorry, settle them inadequately.

London squatters want corrupt 9ja politicians; properties!

Dear Comrades,

London will no longer be used as a place to act with stolen loot with impunity.

The day has come for our vengeance. I am part of a militant squatters collective here in London. We occupy the homes and businesses owned by corrupt politicians and utilise the space as a community centre as the property is owned by all of us.

We then offer health services, legal drop-ins, political classes etc... and demand the return of any stolen loot to be used to help refugees across Africa, stranded due to war and political problems.

We occupied Gadhaffi's property two months ago and are still there at the moment. If anyone knows of any homes/businesses owned by Ibori and Uduaghan owned here in London can you e-mail details to me at toucht123atyahoo.co.uk.

RE: IBORI - EDWARD DO NOT WORRY

My concerned Nigerian, do not worry. The days of freedom for Ibori are over for now and he will pay for his stewardship. Furthermore, why worry about Ibori giving account of his tenure because that won't happen. The onus is on the prosecution to prove the defendant guilty while all the defence has to do is try it's possible best to thwart that effort. Remember Ibori's wife, sister, mistress and lawyer are all serving jail terms as a result of Ibori's antics so there is no way Ibori will get less than 10 years. The sad thing is that when he finally goes back to Nigeria he will be celebrated, but worse is the fact that a man convicted of a criminal offence in the UK and Nigeria was able to successfully rule a state in Nigeria for 8 years. Shame on Nigeria!

IBORI...Singing Like a Canary Might HELP Your Cause

Ibori, since you are now in solitary confinement, you'll probably be receptive to my advise for once.

Ibori, You have the ability to successfully choose your cellmates in England HMP.

Ibori, you should now be spilling the provebial "beans" in order to fill your cell with the right associates or partners in crime.

IBORI, YOU HAVE THE POWER TO CHOOSE VERY HONOURABLE CELLMATES IF ONLY YOU SINGS LIKE A CANARY.

Ibori Where you are going, you won't need all that loot. Get ready to be given pocket money of approximately £6 a week with pleasure from her majesty.

Ibori Mind you...you'll still have to put in a good days work with good behaviour to qualify to earn it.

Birds of thesame Feathers

Mr G.E.J, Prof. Jega, Adah and Waziri are busy feeding themselves with while Ibori is gnatching his teeths in London Prison. Very soon, Uduaghan and Attah will be next.

wishing you hell in prison in advance

How hath the mighty fallen? He belonged to the main secret cult of the land, thus untouchable, he fratanised with the ex chief justice of the fed, aondooka and manage to evade justice for so long. I wish him hell in prison.
