Clark: Ibori’s Aides’s Action At Kaduna Court, A ‘Show Of Shame’

Elder statesman, Chief Edwin Clark and labour activist Chief Frank Kokori have condemned supporters of former Delta State governor James Ibori for demonstrating at the venue of his trial half naked.

Ibori is being tried at the Kaduna Federal High Court for alleged abuse of office, corruption and money laundering.

In separate reactions yesterday, Clark and Kokori described the demonstration as “unnecessary and shameful.”

“They are shameless,” Clark said in Warri, adding that Ibori’s arraignment had vindicated the state Elders and Leaders’ Forum which has been demanding his prosecution.

Speaking against the backdrop of the amendment of the charges against Ibori from 103 to 129 by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Tuesday, Clark said the forum would not be deterred and would continue to press for accountability in the administration of the state’s funds.

The Ijaw leader also criticised students who staged a violent protest in Kaduna on Monday over Ibori’s failure to secure bail. He said: “This is not the true position of majority of the people.”

In Lagos ,Kokori, the arrowhead of the protest against the annulled June 12 1993 presidential election said: “The protest against Ibori’s trial is shameful and unnecessary. Those women are ignorant of what is happening. It was a government sponsored protest, that was why they used the Delta line buses owned by the Delta State Government.

  1. I totally agree with Chief Clark.The so called supporters are nothiing but poor ignorant people.Deceived and cajoled by Ibori and his brother the governor of Delta state mr Uduaghan.It is a shame thay they deplored the state resources to depict their ignorance.99 percent of Delta state citizens are for the trial and eventual imprisonment of mr Ibori.Woe to the looters of the state resources foe they shall see no ssleep.They have murderd sleep like Macbeth

  2. DEAR MR CLARK,
    IT IS VERY APPAULING AT YOUR LEVEL OF REASON TO COMMENT NEGATIVELY,TO OUR EMIABLE PAST GOVERNOR,REMBER WHEN HE WAS STILL THE GOVERNOR,YOU AND YOUR ACCOMPLICE WERE ALWAYS AROUND HIM CALLING HIM DIFFRENT KINDS OF NAMES,APPLAUDING EVERY OF HIS MOVES AND GESTURE.
    NOW IS LIKE THE DEVIL BEFORE THE JURY.
    BUT PUT THIS IN MIND THAT HE WITH OUT SIN SHOULD CAST THE FIRST STONE.

    TRY AND BE IN ONE SIDE,
    AS YOU ARE KNOWN TO US LIKE A GREEN SNAKE.
