James Ibori weeps at Alamieyeseigha’s graveside in Bayelsa

Former governor of Delta state, James Ibori, on Wednesday shed tears at the graveside of Diepreye Alamieyeseigha in Amassoma, Bayelsa state. Alamieyeseigha was Ibori’s ally when they were governors. He died under controversial circumstances in October 2015.

Ibori described the deceased as a patriotic leader, who was very courageous, outspoken and “stood on the side of his people at all times”.

Ibori was still in UK prison when Alamieyeseigha died.
