Photos: Former Governor Of Delta State, James Ibori Released From U.K Prison, FG Begins Extradition Process

James Ibori was released yesterday upon a court order. The Federal Government has also commenced the process of extraditing him from the United Kingdom.

The Southwark Crown Court had, on April 17, 2012, sentenced Ibori to 13 years in prison after the ex-governor pleaded guilty to 10 counts of money laundering and stealing $250m from the Delta State treasury.

Ibori, a Peoples Democratic Party chieftain, was the governor of the state between 1999 and 2007.
