Ibori, who arrived Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja, at around 6.00am into the waiting hands of his ecstatic associates, family, friends and aides was reportedly whisked away by operatives of the Department of State Service.

Report said the ex-convict, who was released in London in December after serving just over four years of a 13-year jail term later left Abuja for Oghara, his hometown in Delta State after DSS operatives were done with him.

It said Ibori flew on a chartered flight to Warri, which landed at Osubi airfield operated by Shell where his supporters received him at the airstrip.
Ibori was jailed in April 2012 for stealing about £50 million pounds belonging to Delta State government when he was the state governor.

The 57-year-old was extradited to UK after he fled Nigeria to Dubai.
