Thhe former governor of Delta, one of Nigeria's richest oil states, has pleaded guilty to stealing $250m in public funds.

Since his arrest in 2010, James Ibori has been tried for the corruption charges in a court in London, where he allegedly siphoned off the stolen money.

British prosecutors say he spent about $200,000 a month and owned at least eight luxurious homes in London.

Yvonne Ndege reports from Delta, where she met some of the residents who were affected by his theft, as poverty continues to run rampant in the state.
