Former governor of Delta State, Southsouth Nigeria, James Ibori has been extradited to London to face trial for alleged money laundering.
Reports say he was seen in Dubai in company of the officers of the London Metropolitan police being taken away.
Ibori escaped to Dubai last year when operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, were about to arrest him for alleged economic crimes when he was Delta state governor.
His sister, Mrs. Christine Ibie-Ibori, was sentenced to five years jail term on 7 June last year for money laundering by the Crown Court in London.
Also jailed last year for the same offence is his associate, Ms Udoamaka Okonkwo-Onuigbo by the London Crown Court.
