Delta State Government happy over release of Ibori from London prison

Delta State Government has said that it has no case with former Governor, James Ibori and as such is very happy for his release from a London prison.
The State Commissioner for Information, Patrick Ukah, stated this in Asaba while speaking with newsmen.
Recall that Mr. Ibori was released from prison yesterday after completing his sentence for fraud in a London prison. According to Mr. Ukah all those who knew him and loved him expressed joy at his release.
Meanwhile; Some Nigerians have expressed displeasure with the celebration of the release of James Ibori from a prison in London. They said that such celebration was condemnable, unfortunate and uncalled for. Mr. Ibori was jailed in 2012, two years after he was arrested by the Interpol in Dubai, where he was hiding after fleeing Nigeria.
He was sentenced to 13 years in prison by a London Court on April 17, 2012 after pleading guilty to 10-count charge of money laundering and conspiracy to defraud. In spite of his guilty plea and conviction for corruption, his kinsmen in Oghara and other Urhobo communities in Delta State, however, turned the affair to a carnival as they lined up major streets dancing.
A Lagos-based legal practitioner, Adekunle Aribisala, said something must be done to stop the celebration of criminality in the country as it was becoming rampant.
In her opinion, Alhaja Aishe Jelil, a civil servant, said the future of the youth who were being used by politicians called for concern.
