Convicted former governor of Delta State, Chief James Ibori, has been transferred to a maximum-security prison, the Worcestershire Long Lartin Prison outside London.
United Kingdom prison officials confirmed the transfer to saharareporters.com, but said they could not tell what informed the move.
“Yes, Mr. Ibori is now serving his prison term in the Long Lartin prison in Worcestershire,” said an official of the UK prisons.
The maximum-security prison houses terrorists, rapists, drug barons, and other violent criminals. A recent report in The Guardian, a major UK newspaper, portrayed the prison as a rough, lawless facility where gangsters reign supreme.
