On a day that a London court ruled that former Delta state governor James Ibori, could return to Nigeria, he signalled a possible political comeback in the country.

He told Reuters he would return within days to Nigeria.

Ibori was released from British prison in December after serving half of his 13-year sentence, taking into account pre-trial detention.

“What happens in African politics – you are in it until you die,” Ibori told Reuters in London on Tuesday.

“I am a politician, I will always be a politician. I play the politics in my party and in my country for the good of my people,” he said after a court hearing, part of ongoing legal proceedings in his case.

Ibori’s release had reportedly prompted dancing in the streets in parts of Delta State.

Asked if he would run for office again, Ibori said he was barred from doing so for 10 years because of his conviction, but that he intended to appeal to have that conviction overturned.

The appeal would centre on an allegation, made by one of Ibori’s former associates, that a British police officer had taken bribes in return for inside information on the case before Ibori’s conviction, and that prosecutors had covered it up.

British police say the allegation was investigated, resulting in no arrests or charges.

The state prosecution service says material supporting the allegation exists and it initially failed to disclose that to Ibori’s defence team, but it is confident Ibori’s conviction remains valid. Court proceedings are ongoing.

What do you expect? When all the power bigwigs in Delta state and beyond, are visiting to felicitate with him. He was NEVER reprimanded or chastised for what he did, and was convicted of. Rather, they turned his house to a pilgrimage of sort.
As soon as he lands in Delta State, many chieftain titles awaits him. Plus, many of his boys will start paying Tithes to him.
Nonsense country.

Liberate who?
Instead of him to hide his face in shame, he's talking about some nonsense liberation. Liberation or more looting.

Trust me, if Buhari tries to arrest that thief, some idiots (like Fayo and he rest) will start chanting witch-hunt. Even the common Nigerians that he stole from will start supporting the thief.
