James Ibori, Corruption trial and Asaba Judge Letter to London Judge; the full story

James Ibori

The purported letter from the trial judge in the Federal High Court, Asaba, Delta State in the matter of FRN vs. Cheif James Onanefe Ibori and others to a trial court in London did not happen after all, but is only a figment of some peoples imagination; so said Barrister Emeka Arinze, the legal counsel to the former governor of Delta State, Mr James Ibori.

Furthermore, information available to us seems to indicate that it was a London Lawyer that wrote Mr. Arinze, who then replied on the strength of the letter from Asaba Court, but he attached that relevant letter (below) from the Registrar of Asaba Federal High Court; “that is what they claim came from the Asaba Judge”, An Ibori associate emphasized.
