So…about Ibori

You guys should know about the Ibori case by now. If you don’t, catch up here.

Too lazy to click?

Well, he stole about $250 million while in government.

$250000000.

Yes, seven zeros.

But, that’s not all. Apparently, he didn’t plead “guilty”. Or he did, but not really.

Ibori did not want a long-drawn trial where Nigeria’s name would be bandied about in a foreign court.

Ibori loves Nigeria so much that didn’t want Nigeria’s name trashed in foreign court. However, stealing $250,000,000 is totally cool.

Yes, seven zeros.

Roongroj Saengsastra, the 33rd richest man in Thailand, is worth $250,000,000.

What matters to Ibori is that all corruption charges were dropped by the London Police for lack of evidence. Any claim that any corruption charge he is facing is pure propaganda. He did not plead guilty to any corruption charge.

Propaganda? Really? This is propaganda?

Dr. Dre (producer extraordinaire, part owner of those Beats headphones) is worth $250,000,000.

The British and the Nigerian establishments have been driving this case to a pre-determined end, and a battle weary Ibori was advised to plead guilty, end what had promised to be a long-drawn trial, and begin to rebuild his life which had been tossed about in an ocean of legal controversy and trials because of politics— since 2003, that is nine long years ago. Also, Ibori did not want a long-drawn trial where Nigeria’s name would be bandied about in a forign court.

God, these people must think we’re stupid.
