I have forgiven my persecutors – James Ibori

Former Delta state governor, James Ibori, says he has forgiven all the people that ganged up against him, leading to his eventual incarceration in a UK priosn. Ibori was found guilty of money laundering and was in a UK prison for five years. He was released in February last year.

At a reception organised for him at Ovwor-Olomu in Ughelli South Local Government Area of the state by one of his Urhobo kinsmen and political associate, Chief John Oguma, over the weekend, Ibori said his imprisonment served as a political sabattical leave.

I have forgiven all those who played one role or the other in my incarceration. It has been a year since I returned from my sabbatical leave. I thank God and the entire Urhobo class for their support. In the days ahead, my actions will express my gratitude to you all,” Ibori said



  1. Well since Nigerian government has no laws to punish our corrupt leaders, kudos to British government in doing the needful.

  2. It’s not fault, when they say you should now be celebrated, why won’t you have the guts to open your filthy mouth and start saying such rubbish. Instead of you to apologize to Nigerians and seek for forgiveness, here you are claiming to forgive some people. What kind of society is ours for God’s sake? No shame, full of lies and denials and yet people will be hailing these rogues. I weep for this country

  3. Bloody rogue. You are not able to bribe/influence the British legal system unduly hence you were found guilty and convicted. You are shameless to say you were robed in. Ex-convict
