WARRI— Scores of youths, women and men at the early hours of yesterday embarked on fresh protest on the streets of Warri, Delta State demanding the release of Chief James Onanefe Ibori by the London court on the case which commenced yesterday to April 11, 2014, saying that the court should release Ibori since it lacks evidence against him.

The protesters numbering over 5000 carried placards with various inscription including,”Judge Pitts release Ibori for us for lack of evidence”, “We want our son back”, “You cannot keep our Ibori there when you lack evidence”, “Our son is innocent.”

The protesters also said the decision of the London court goes against the grain of legal procedures and ominous because it reinforces the belief in some quarters that Ibori had been allegedly targeted for jail by hook or crook by the United Kingdom authorities for reasons yet unknown.

One of the protesters, Chief Gabriel Efeduku, a media analyst said: “The decision goes against the grain of legal procedures and ominous because it reinforces the belief in some quarters that Ibori had been targeted for jail by hook or crook by the British authorities for reason yet unknown particularly because the procedure being adopted by the British court smacks of working from answer to question.”
