AGF AONDOAKAA'S LETTER UNFREEZES IBORI'S ASSETS

While the rest of the nation were being hoodwinked into celebrating Nigeria’s 47th independence as a giant stride towards a 'democratic' government, President Yar’adua and his thugs of criminal councels were busy celebrating the unfreezing of Delta State stolen assets to an indicted ex-governor.

Attorney General of the Federation-turns-Nigeria’s Attorney General of Corrupt Politicians, Michael Aondoakaa sent a letter dated August 7th 2007 to Chief James Onafefe Ibori's lawyers in London with the sole aim of sabotaging money laundering investigations against Ibori and his accomplices. The letter which was exclusively obtained speaks for itself; in it the AGF sought to exonerate Chief James Onafefe Ibori from charges of money laundering and corruption by claiming that he was only investigated while in office, but had never been charged to court or currently face further investigations.

It was a cleverly crafted letter that provided James Ibori's lawyers the needed ammunition to get a restraining order earlier granted by the Southwark Crown court in London to be lifted on October 1, 2007; the very day millions of Nigerians were busy celebrating independence day. The AGF secretly wrote a reply to an inquiry from Ibori's lawyers without recourse to the EFCC or any other security agency of the government.

Meanwhile when the London Metropolitan Police tried to contact him for help, the AGF dribbled them around and delayed any timely response that could help their case against James Ibori. The result is an exposure of the hypocrisy of the Yar'adua government who have publicly claimed that they will fight corruption with zeal. Yar'adua also said that he will not shield his former thieving colleagues, but the actions of his government points to a farcical and theatrical war against corruption.

As expected, the British governments and the UN, whose convention against corruption specifically calls on nations around the world to cooperate and collaborate, have shown indifference to Yar'adua's rhetorics.

Celebrations in Delta State?

We cannot but express more outrage in the aftermath of the courts decision! READ HERE
Delta State Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan; cousin to Ex-Governor James Ibori declared a state thanksgiving service at the City Hall, Government House, Asaba to express gratitude to God for the victory.

Reacting to the development, the Delta State government through the Commissioner for Information, Mr Oma Djebah, said: “This is not just a victory for Chief James Onanefe Ibori but also a victory for all Deltans both in the state and in the diaspora as well as the state government.”
He said the court’s decision was widely welcomed in the state and greeted with jubilation in places like Asaba, Warri, Sapele and Ughelli. “People were calling me from Warri when they heard the news over the radio. So, all Deltans were in jubilation,” he said.


Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan yesterday directed that there would be a thanksgiving service at the City Hall, Government House, Asaba to express gratitude to God for the victory.

Does the looting and outright plagiarizing of Delta state's treasury calls for celebration and thanksgiving? Nigeria Politricks have advocated that AGF Aondoakaa Must Go!
Over to you Nigerians – What do you have to say?!
