The former governor of Delta state, James Ibori, who had arrived Nigeria earlier today, was picked by operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) immediately after his arrival at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja.
It was gathered that the former governor was taken to the head office of the secret police.
A source who is close to the polity revealed that the meeting with the DSS was pre-arranged.
“It was pre-arranged that he should have a chat with the DSS director-general, Lawal Daura, upon his arrival. He will not be detained. His appointment was for 12:00 hrs so the operatives went to pick him up and drove him down for the meeting,” the operative said.
Ibori has left the headquarters of the DSS after a meeting with Lawal Daura, director of the DSS.
The former governor was recently freed from prison in the UK after serving a jail term.
He was convicted of corruption and money laundering on April 17, 2012, after five years of trial.
The Southwark Crown Court, UK, sentenced him to 13 years in prison while his houses, luxury cars and other property items were confiscated.
The judge, however, ruled that Ibori would spend half of the jail term which is six and half years.
Just like his release in December, his arrival in Warri and Oghara today is expected to trigger dancing in the streets.
