 United Kingdom has moved to confiscate proceeds of loot in the £117m worth of properties linked to James Ibori, former governor of Delta State, as he appeared in court on Thursday via video link.

Ibori, who governed Delta from 1999 to 2007, had reportedly pleaded guilty at London’s Southwark Crown Court in 2012 to 10 counts of fraud and money-laundering, and thereafter, received a 13-year jail sentence.

Having served half of his sentence in pre and post-trial detention, he was released from jail in December 2016 and is now back in Nigeria.

According to London’s Metro newspaper, prosecuting counsel, Jonathan Kinnear, listed assets laundered by the former governor.

Kinnear said the London Metropolitan Police found that Ibori used the money he stole from Delta State to buy six houses in London.

He paid £2.2m in cash for one of those mansions in tony Hampstead.

He also bought a £13m jet, a £600,000 fleet of Range Rovers, and a £120,000
