James Ibori's Friends.
Friday 24th Jule 2011 at the Southwark Crown Court London- United Kingdom venue of the money laundering trial of former Delta state gover, James Ibori, a rowdy crowd soon popped up in court claiming that Mr. Ibori's trial was political and demanded his freedom.
In this video shot by Kayode Ogundamisi, (incidentally the first citizen reporter to photograpgh Ibori's Bentley car parked in his London mansion in 2005), it was discovered that some of the so-called supporters did not know who they had come to support or at best, are not willing to talk about him.
The hired crowd numbering were reportedly sent by the Ibori's cousin and Governor of Delta state, Emmanuel Uduaghan.
Kayode Ogundamisi is a commentator on Nigerian and international affairs, he was involved in the Nigerian pro-democracy struggle, Ogundamisi survived a trumped up charge of treasonable offence against the military government of General Babangida, he was detained in Jos prison in 1991 and released after intensive local and international campaigns against the government charging him and 12 other students before a military tribunal. Ogundamisi was a frontline member of the National Association of Nigerian Student and a former secretary general of the the University of Jos Students Union in Nigeria and the O'dua Peoples Congress.
