The flight, a Challenger 60, landed at Benin airport at about 2.25pm. Mr. Ibori stepped into his country home Oghara at about 3:30 pm.

His residence was thronged by well-wishers and political associates, who came to rejoice with him while security was beefed up to maintain law and order within and outside the Ibori residence.

Outside of his residence, Oghara was in frenzy. Hundreds of people marched round the town carrying leaves while some painted their faces with chalk. Musical bands entertained the crowd at various points.

Meanwhile, Governor of Delta state, Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa has on Sunday, after Church Service in Asaba, headed for Oghara to meet his political leader, Chief James Onanefe Ibori.
