BREAKING NEWS :The anticipation that Goodluck Jonathan willprosecute the fingers that fed his presidential election is a mirage. You will remember how Former President Obasanjo refused to handover Babangida for prosecution. The Dr Pius Okigbo Committee report on the wasteful spending of $12 billion dollar gulf oil windfall vanished from all public records during the administration of Olusegun Obasanjo. All efforts by the Nigerian people to pressurise Obasanjo to prosecute Babangida fell on deaf ears because the latter was the leader of the people who dragged Obasanjo into the State House in 1999. Umaru Yar'adua was not able to surrender James Ibori for trial. He frustrated all earlier attempts by the Metropolitan Police to arraign Thief James Ibori for money laundering charges. He sent a high poweredletter and delegation from Aoondoaka, then Attorney General and Minister for Justice of Nigeria to persuade the British police that Ibori was a clean man.

Amid apprehension by some Nigerians that the Goodluck Jonathan administration might negotiate with UK authorities over the fate of former Governor James Ibori of Delta State, a source at the British Home Office told SaharaReporters today that the idea of repatriating Mr. Ibori to serve his sentence in Nigeria “is absolutely out of the question.” On Monday, former Governor Ibori appeared before the Southwark Crown Court in London and pleaded guilty to money laundering and conspiracy charges. He is due to be sentenced on April 16 and 17th. Confronted with the prospect of spending at least twenty years in prison had he chosen to go through a drawn-out trial, Mr. Ibori decided to plead guilty to embezzling billions of naira in public funds and using the looted funds to finance a splurgy lifestyle that included the acquisition of airplanes, choice real estate in Britain and other parts of the world, and a collection of expensive cars, including Bentleys. Following Mr. Ibori's guilty plea, speculations made ...
Prominent lawyers have said the recent report that a British Metropolitan Police officer collected a £20, 000 bribe from former Governor of Delta State, James Ibori, who is serving a 13-year jail term in the United Kingdom, is not a problem for Nigeria, since the country is known for corruption. The lawyers, who spoke to SUNDAY PUNCH, said while Ibori’s action was highly condemnable, it was the UK government that has to work hard to clean up its reputation tainted by the bribery. A Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Prof. Itse Sagay, said the bribery would not affect Nigeria’s image. “Nigeria has no reputation to lose in this case. The country is already known worldwide for corruption. Nigeria is close to the top on the list of corrupt countries. It is the UK that has something to lose. It is a stain on their reputation that one of their police officers could take bribe from a suspect who comes from a developing nation,” he said. Similarly, Emeka Ngige, (SAN) said the bribery case showed that corruption ...
