James Ibori: Asaba agog with celebration as residents roll out drums for 'Odidigborigbo' | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

Ancient Asaba town and its environs were literally paralysed on Wednesday in jubilation, following news of the release of ex-Governor of Delta State, James Onanefe Ibori.

The news of his release from London prison where he had served 10-year jail term for money laundering and other offences filtered into Asaba and its environs in the early hours.

According to reports, at various Quarters’ residents, Asaba youths rolled out their drums to celebrate the man they described as “Odidigborigbo.”

The youths sang Asaba-Ibo songs along Nnebisi Road, Summit Junction, Okpanam Road and Anwai Road where they danced freely to drumbeats, causing serious traffic gridlock.

Security agents and the popular Ogbeogonogo Market Women were not left out in the jubilation.
