Ibori Leaves DSS Office, Heads For Delta


James Ibori has left the Department of State Services (DSS) in Abuja after holding a meeting with Lawal Daura, the director-general.

The former governor of Delta state returned to the country on Saturday after serving a jail term for fraud in the UK.

Upon his arrival in the country, he was picked up by DSS operatives and then taken to the head office of the secret police for a “briefing”.

An official who spoke with the cable said it should not be interpreted as an “arrest”.

It was pre-arranged that he should have a chat with the DSS director-general upon his arrival. He will not be detained. His appointment was for 12:00 hrs so the operatives went to pick him up and then drove him down for the meeting,” the operative said.

Ibori is eagerly awaited in Oghara, his home town in Delta state, where he is expected to receive a warm welcome.
