My trial taught me incredible lessons – Ibori

James Ibori, former governor of Delta State, has disclosed that his
corruption trial has taught him incredible lessons that he could not
have learnt in any institution of learning.

He said this in the October edition of EFCCAlert, a monthly newsletter
of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

In 2012, Ibori was sentenced by a United Kingdom Southwark Crown Court
to 13 years in prison after he was found guilty of counts of money
laundering and related offences of fraud to the tune of £50 million.

"Owing to this, I have since lost faith in the British judicial
system, having been through it and observed first-hand the politics,
desperation and wicked machinations inherent in the process that
rigged the trial against me and against all judicial wholesome
processes, which differentiate the modern era from the dark ages.

"I will continue to protest the political nature of my predicament.

"In all of this, I will say that what I have been through since the
persecution against me began has taught me incredible lessons; lessons
I could not have learnt in any institution of higher learning," he
said.
