After years of serving his jail term in the United Kingdom, former Governor of Delta State, Mr James Ibori, has regained his freedom.
Mr Ibori was convicted by a court in the UK for offences bordering on fraud.
During his trial, the politician confessed purchasing six foreign properties and a fleet of cars with the stolen funds of about £200 million.
He was sentenced to prison for 13 years after pleading guilty to 10 charges of fraud and money laundering in February 2012.
However, on Wednesday, a UK Court ordered his unconditional release, nevertheless held that the former Governor must return to court in January.
He said also been directed to report the police at least once a week.
This will frustrate his return to Nigeria, especially Delta State, where he still reportedly has huge influence.
