United Kingdom to return looted funds to Nigeria

16 May 2016 National

The Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami stated over the weekend that the government of the United Kingdom has agreed to return the funds stolen from Nigeria.

Malami made this revelation upon his return from the United Kingdom on Saturday after a two-day International Anti-Corruption Summit.

The minister has said the UK expressed commitment towards returning Nigeria’s looted funds during a bilateral meeting between the two nations.

He said though there was no estimate of how much of the Nigeria’s funds stashed in the UK, but “it has been compiled for certainty.”

Malami said apart from the meetings which Nigeria had with the UK, there were no other bilateral talks between Nigeria and other nations.
