Theresa Ibori, the former First Lady of Delta State, is going to prison for between two- five years.

The London jury in her Southwark Crown Court trial returned their verdict today after she was found guilty on two counts of money laundering. James Ibori's United Kingdom lawyer, Mr. Bhadresh Gohil, who was on trial with Theresa, has been found guilty on all counts of money laundering. He has been remanded in police custody.


Mr. Gohil will be sentenced after the conclusion of another trial involving the laundering of proceeds of V-Mobile shares by James Ibori, Henry Imashekka, David Edevbie and former Akwa Ibom governor, Victor Attah. The trial will start on Monday.

In a previous trial, the court had also sent to prison Ibori's sister, Christine Ibori-Ibie; and  his mistress, Udoamaka Okoronkwo-Onuigbo.

The main culprit, James Ibori, awaits extradition to the UK to face three set of trials relating to money laundering and theft of delta state resources.

Suites them right for what they have done. Greed. They want all the money so that them and their family will not suffer while others wallow in poverty. MOney meant for a state development one man wants to siphon all to himself. the law has caught up with them and they are paying for the greed now.

This is a good news and I hope it will serve as a deterrent to other would be criminals, criminally minded politicians and public servants in Nigeria who enrich themselves, family and concubines at the expense of Nigerians. SHAME ON YOU FOOLS! Ibori, you will soon join your spouse and sorry, there will be no conjucal visit. I strongly beleive that more Crooks who claim to be politicians and public servants such as Achikwe Udenwa, Orji Uzo Kalu, Professor Nwosu, Joshua Dariye, Obasanjo's daughter, Kerny Martins, Emmanuel Uduaghan and Chukwuma Soludo just to mention a few should join them in prison because they have contributed to the failure of Nigeria. Cecilia Ibru, report to kirikiri now and start serving your prison term. The days of faking illness and laying in prison bed is OVER. SHAMELESS CRIMINALS.

I meant to say Cecilia Ibru report to Kirikiri and start serving your prison term. The days of faking illness and laying in hospital bed are over. Nigerians are wiser than that now.
