United Kingdom Moves To Confiscate £117m Properties Linked To Former Delta Governor, Ibori

The United Kingdom has moved to confiscate proceeds of loot in the £117m worth of properties linked to James Ibori, former governor of Delta State, as he appeared in court on Thursday via video link.

Ibori, who governed Delta from 1999 to 2007, had reportedly pleaded guilty at London’s Southwark Crown Court in 2012 to 10 counts of fraud and money-laundering, and thereafter, received a 13-year jail sentence.

According to London’s Metro newspaper, prosecuting counsel, Jonathan Kinnear, listed assets laundered by the former governor.

Kinnear said the London Metropolitan Police found that Ibori used the money he stole from Delta State to buy six houses in London. 

He paid £2.2m in cash for one of those mansions in tony Hampstead. 
He also bought a £13m jet, a £600,000 fleet of Range Rovers, and a £120,000 Bentley.

Ibori put his children in expensive British private schools while sharing the stolen funds with his wife, sister and mistress. 

He also traveled all over the world, staying in the most expensive hotels and spending lavishly in luxury stores.

But Ivan Krolick representing Ibori, said his wealth was down to being a ‘successful businessman’.

In 2018, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission said Ibori was fighting tooth and nail to stall the confiscation of those assets.

The anti-graft commission also accused him of employing media propaganda to paint himself as a victim of persecution.

Even today he is been celebrated as the wisest and best politician in Delta state.


Someone who looted both the current and future resources of Delta children....for you to be known you must be a thief so that your people can sing your praises.


If this money has been injected properly in Delta state, many youths will be empowered and gainfully employed but no they will reserve 1k per person during elections....as a sign of love.


Ibori served Delta well and London is reaping the fruits of his meritorious service.

angry It should have been confiscated a long time ago. Death penalty should be imposed on those who stole this country wealth. angry He's a close friend of the wayas. A modern hospital can be built with two million dollars. That money would be enough to build over 50 embarassed, Nigeria is cursed with bad leaders.

Didn't they organise a big welcome party for him? Until Nigerians realise that these bloodsuckers deserve nothing but death, our suffering continues.

It is not our leaders that suffer amnesia but the people who suffer selective amnesia and are only interested in stomach infrastructure. undecided

people in the south south have this mindset of " everybody is corrupt, but at least try and do something" their political motto is STEAL BUT WORK. that is why people like ibori and alamesiya are celebrated so passionately because they tried for their states even tho they stole billions of naira meant for citizens. Alamesiya's anniversary Is still celebrated.
