Britain demands N7bn before Ibori’s deportation

22 December 2016, 08:23

London - Former Delta state governor, James Onanefe Ibori who was released from a UK prison on Wednesday will remain in the country for a foreseeable time pending when he will fulfil some ‘release’ conditions.

Ibori will have to pay N7b (£18 million) to the UK government as the proceeds of crime, reports New Telegraph.

He must also face a deportation hearing, which is scheduled for January 2017.

The former governor is expected to be visiting the Croydon Police Station regularly before his final appearance in court in 2017.

Upon the completion of his confiscation trial in London Ibori will likely face further trial in Nigeria.

Punch reports that Federal Government has commenced the process of extraditing Ibori from the United Kingdom.

The Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN), had directed the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to forward the file containing the 170 charges earlier brought against Ibori in Nigeria.
