UGHELLI â€” FORMER governorship aspirant in Delta State, Mr. Sunny Onuesoke, has berated the state chapter of the Committee for the Defence of Human Rights, CDHR, over its comment on the victory of Chief James Onanefe Ibori at the Federal High Court, Asaba on the 170-count charge preferred against him (Ibori) by the EFCC.
The CDHR had, in a recent media report, tasked the EFCC not to hesitate to appeal against the Federal High Court’s judgment in favour of Ibori.
Onuesoke, who spoke to Vanguard on the issue, said the CDHRâ€™s call on the EFCC to pursue the case to appellate court was unwarranted and uncalled for.
He said â€œit is inhuman for the CDHR to instigate the EFCC against our former governor, Chief James Onanefe Ibori, who did so much to develop Delta State.
â€œIbori is one man that God sent in 1999 to redeem our state from the shackles of under-development.â€
He did not just develop our infrastructures, he also developed Deltans.
â€œI want to seize this opportunity to thank Deltans for their unequal support for Chief James Onanefe Ibori during his period of travail.â€
