Former governor of Delta State, Chief James Onanefe Ibori has been released from prison.

He was released a few minutes past noon upon a court order.

His media aide, Mr. Tony Elumenor confirmed the release to Vanguard.

Ibori was sentenced by a United Kingdom court to prison for 13 years and served out his term midnight yesterday.

Expectation of his return home to Nigeria, however, remains murky as friends and associates many of whom are gathered in London deliberate on the future of the former governor.
