EFCC Vows to arrest Ibori on 170 count charge


The Economic and Financial Crimes commission, EFCC, has vowed to arraign the former Delta governor, James Ibori on a 170 count charge.

Prior to his conviction on the United Kingdom, UK, EFCC had dragged Ibori before an Asaba High Court on a 170 count charge which was struck out.

A source told PUNCH that the commission would soon invite Ibori for questioning.


According to the source, “Ibori still has 170 charges pending against him. Also, the Appeal Court has given us the go-ahead to prosecute him and this ruling has not been upturned by the Supreme Court.

“As things stand, the EFCC has the right to arrest him at anytime. Ibori, among other allegations, was accused of embezzling N40bn which belonged to the state. Also, a former Chairman of the EFCC, Nuhu Ribadu, alleged that the former governor attempted to bribe him with $15m cash.”
