Estimated Reading Time: <1

Ancient Asaba town and its environs were literally paralysed on Wednesday in jubilation, following news of the release of ex-Governor of Delta State, James Onanefe Ibori.

The news of his release from London prison where he had served 10-year jail term for money laundering and other offences filtered into Asaba and its environs in the early hours.

The State Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Barr. Peter Mrakpor, who spoke to journalists in Asaba, described Ibori’s release as a welcome development; adding that his contributions to nation building cannot be overemphasised.

“I’m particularly grateful and hope that the Federal Government would grant him state pardon,” Egodike said.

His kinsmen at Oghara and other Urhobo communities in the state, however, turned the affair to a carnival as they lined up the major streets dancing.
