Ibori vs Ribadu: Andy Uba, Achigbu lay claim to alleged $15m bribe

Senator Andy Uba and Chibuike Achigbu, two principal players in the $15 million dollars exchange between Nuhu Ribadu and Chief James Ibori have finally come out to claim ownership of the funds signaling a new twist to the phoney bribery tale being peddled by Mr. Ribadu, a former Chairman of the EFCC.

Chibuike and Uba have approached the same federal high court sitting in Abuja to claim ownership of the funds just like the Delta State Government, which maintained that the funds were taken from Delta treasury by convicted former governor Chief James Ibori.



The EFCC had gone to court to obtain an order to confiscate the funds, which Mr. Ribadu wrongfully claimed was offered as bribe to him by Chief Ibori to stall his prosecution for corruption.

THEWILL had repeatedly reported that the funds handed to Ribadu was not a bribe but a political arrangement between Ribadu, Ibori and Obasanjo.

The duo said the funds were handed to Ribadu to finance the 2007 Presidential elections for the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).



Details of the filing shortly.

Maka why Linda.is it that you just copy and paste?The first paragraph made it seem as if there was a story before this was posted.I got more confused as I do not understand the essence of posting with letting your readers understand the pre-cursor to the story.

Linda, are you endorsing The Will's article by cutting and pasting verbatim?
Please try to rephrase your posts when copying from external sources. That The Will carried the story doesn't mean it is fact. Some of these sites are based outside Nigeria and can say what they like. Can you? Should you? Nwayokwa adaanyi.

Now I guess all Nigerians should also lay claim to dat money. Such an ugly situation can only happen in a country like Nigeria,people are burnt for stealing #50, while someone offers $15 million dollars to cover a stolen wealth.~BONARIO~says so via NOKIA3310.

Linda what exactly is your take on this?, you seem to be an Ibori apologist. Why copy and paste a story that is biased. I am a fervent reader of your blog, but you sometimes exhibit total lack of professionalism.

The money is mine . I gave it to ibori to give to andy uba for andy to give it ribadu and ribadu was supposed to use it to further the pdp agenda . Now that the court is looking for the owner, I am going to court also.
