In a witness statement deposed to in August in London, as part of the ongoing investigations into Mr. Ibori’s alleged criminal activities (by the London Metropolitan Police), Ribadu narrates the events of that day.

“On the day that James said that he was going to give me money, I told my colleagues and we went to Andy Uba’s house... James (Ibori)was there and his servant or driver brought out the money from the house, in two (2) massive sacks containing US$100 dollar bills. My staff took possession of the money... I told my staff to take the money to the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) where it was counted and lodged as an exhibit.”

“The money” in question added up to “exactly US$15 million” [N2.25 billion]. Andy Uba, at whose house this exchange took place, was then a special assistant to President Olusegun Obasanjo. At the time the offer was made, Mr. Ribadu’s annual official salary was about US$50,000.

It was not the first meeting between Mr. Ribadu and Mr. Ibori. Indeed Mr. Ibori was no stranger to criminal investigations and law courts. His first four years as Governor were spent largely fighting allegations that he was an ex-convict and therefore ineligible to have contested for Governorship in the first place.

“I have met with James Onanafe Ibori (James) on numerous occasions prior to and during the period that he was under investigation. When I began investigating him he asked me what could be done to stop the investigation (into him). He told me that everybody was corrupt and that he was doing it because everybody else was doing it,” Mr. Ribadu’s deposition states.

Corruption is in Nigeria as it is all over the world. if you need prove directly from US Senator, I'll give you the link.

You Nigerians gotta wake up and stop giving themselves brand-name that will affect them later.

one day owl wake up from sleep call the childern one by one and said " i;m very very afraid of your eyes" who do they put suger in his mouth tht will throw up that he don;t like it. That is Nigerianistic nature, but only Ribadu said no. He is right bcos he went with his colledge, as if he did not go with his colledge what would have happened, only the one he went with his colledge is the one we are able to hear. Anyway, let us forget all this and look for a way to enrich ourselves, not only in politics but some good Nigerian ran down Volks Wagen Nigeria, they still won election, and his secretary later come to be president and we are all blowing his flute, In channels. Since, He refuse the money what happened next his molestation, i too know is not good. Abeggy i don't know why i'm wasting my time for this crappy event... Shine your EYE Dont DIE  Huh? Huh? Huh?

I thought I was not corrupt, but when I read $15 million US, I have to admit that I started having some imagination as to where they could deposit it in my US accounts.  I am kind of worried about me for having those feelings.  Money makes us unpredictable at times.  When you start imagining how much better you can improve your life and your family and friends life, I can see why some people could do this including very good and upright people.  God help all of us including me.

Not sure what is going on.
