DSS picks up James Ibori

DSS picks up James Ibori

James Ibori has left the Department of State Services (DSS) in Abuja after holding a meeting with Lawal Daura, the director-general.

The former governor of Delta state returned to the country on Saturday after serving a jail term for fraud in the UK.

TheCable understands that he was picked up by DSS operatives and then taken to the head office of the secret police for a “briefing”.

An official who spoke with TheCable said it should not be interpreted as an “arrest”.

“It was pre-arranged that he should have a chat with the DSS director-general upon his arrival. He will not be detained. His appointment was for 12:00 hrs so the operatives went to pick him up and then drove him down for the meeting,” the operative said
