Nigerian Govt Slams Those Who Tried To Frustrate Return Of Abacha’s $311m Loot

Nigeria’s Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami, has flayed those who he claims wanted to frustrated the repatriation of $311million looted by late Head of State, Sani Abacha.

In a statement on Wednesday, Malami told such persons to “bury their heads in shame”.

 

The federal government on Monday, received the funds from the United States and the Bailiwick of Jersey.

The litigation process for the recovery of the loot, which is part of the $5billion allegedly stolen by Abacha, commenced in 2014.

Malami also fired at those who criticised his use of “Abacha assets” to describe the stolen funds.

 

“It is palpable that news about successful return of the looted assets have brought nightmares to naysayers and pessimists who wanted to frustrate the repatriation process through a campaign of calumny.

“They resorted to rhetoric instead of burying their heads in shame,” part of the statement read.
