This conviction of such a man that was so close to the corridor of power in the country is ,or should be a perfect case study for those who are interested in doing something about the corruption system in Nigeria. Ibori was like an infected cell that managed to penetrate the fabric of an aggressive political party ( PDP ) to infect and thereby corrupt the system,including the governor's office,the judiciary and even up to the presidency, Ibori had his tentacles everywhere. Indeed, divine intervention saved Nigeria from such a clever maniplator. Come to think of it,one cannot help but to ponder it :

What ever happens to the term "guilty by association"? Many prominent people would go the same way as Ibori and Nigeria would be better off. But,how unfortunate that most people in Nigeria know no shame. As a result the most celebrated celebrities in our society are the most serial criminals in our midst. The judge or judges that handled the trials of Ibori's criminal cases in Nigeria should have no more peaceful night sleep after hearing about this guilty conviction coming from London. They too are all guilty of corruption against the state.

This is wickedness. How can a person whom his citizens entrusted but latter, betray such a trust and stole what was meant for the development of the state but tried to inherit it alone? He shouldn't be released rather, be jailed life in prison. Because he have destroyed many lives by looting such huge amount of money. 'Shege baban barawo, mazam-baci.'

If this man can be used as an example, i belive others will lain lessons. Please the people in authority should help us dump that theif in a prison.

This common thief is also bloody coward afterall. After quashing 140 charges elsewhere you won't expect an ogidigborigbo of Africa to pronounce self guilty to a mere 10 but to die insisting on his inocence; but here is not Nigeria and judjes here are not for sale or, what is his game plan?

So the confiscated loot will be returned to the people of Delta State whose custodian of the coffers is Uduaghan? Is he hoping for a reduction in sentence and a 'quick' return to the round-tripped loot ensured by his also thieving cousin?
