The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission is set to re-arrest and prosecute a former Governor of Delta State, James Ibori, who will complete his prison sentence in the UK later this month.
Barring last minute changes, Mr Ibori will be arraigned on charges bordering on money laundering and corruption.
A Southwark crown court had sentenced Mr. Ibori to 13 years in prison after the ex-governor pleaded guilty to allegations of money laundering and stealing $250 million from the public treasury.
Following his conviction in the UK, there were criticisms of the Nigerian justice system, especially an Asaba High Court which had struck out all the 170 charges which the EFCC had brought against Mr Ibori.
The EFCC , however took the matter to the appeal court where a three-man panel of justices, at the Benin division of the court ruled that the ex- governor has a case to answer.
