JUNE 27, 2012 BY AGENCY REPORTER 168 COMMENTS Udoamaka Okoronkwo-Onuigbo, the mistress of a former governor of Delta State, James Ibori, has been released from a United Kingdom Prison after serving two years.
Okoronkwo-Onuigbo, who was tried alongside Ibori's sister, Christine Ibori-Ibie, was found guilty of money laundering and mortgage fraud and was sentenced to five years by Judge Christopher Hardy of a Southwark London Crown Court on June 7, 2010.
The two women were accused and subsequently convicted of handling proceeds of criminal transactions on behalf of Ibori while he was governor of Delta State.
The court however ordered that their sentences be served concurrently and Okoronkwo-Onuigbo was released in May.
The ex-convict has since returned to Nigeria and was seen in Abuja recently.
Ibori is presently in a UK prison where he is spending a 13-year jail term.
Well the Akunakuna ( Ashewo ) has served her time so I suppose all is forgiven. She will be better advised to start educating Nigerian women that there is NO SUBSTITUTE to hard work to earn money. Although these will fall on mostly deaf ears as the typical response will be "See dis woman don chop now she dey preach".
