    This sounds healthy and interesting.. The same Ibori was discharged by our judicial system. This is a system we must practice as a nation. UK is has no bureaucratic affinity when it comes corruption as we densely have it here. God blesses every upright human being, it is your choice to be one.

    Where is Justice Marcel Awokulehin, the fraudulent and corrupt judge who discharged and acquited thief Onanefe James Ibori, of the 103 charges brought against him by a fellow criminal Ibrahim Lamorde-led EFCC?
    Shame on Nigerian judiciary. Thieves!

    To save Delta State keep Ibori in prison. The moment that crook steps into Nigeria he will have the sitting Delta governor impeached and he will take his place. He is a crook alright, through and through but he has a way with Deltans…they cant resist himlol
