Published by The Nation on Mon, 03 May 2021


By Eric Ikhilae, AbujaThe Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, has explained the delay in the final retrieval of the 4.2million Ibori loot from the United Kingdom (UK) was as a result of some logistic challenges currently being addressed.The British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Ms. Catriona Laing, announced on March 9 at a meeting with the AGF that her country has concluded plans to return to Nigeria money recovered from friends and family members of the former governor of Delta State, James Ibori.Laing, who said the return of the 4.2m was the first of such from the UK to Nigeria, under a memorandum of understanding signed between both countries in 2016, was however silent on the actual date the money would be released.In a statement on Monday by his Special Assistant on Media, Dr. Umar Jibril Gwandu, Malami said the Federal Government was working tirelessly to ensure the return of looted Nigerian assets kept outside the countrys territorial boundariesRead Also:FG unveils new judges salaries, conditions of service soonMalamiMalami assured that any moment from now, Nigeria would receive the Ibori loot, explaining sometimes, when a country transfers funds, it may take a little bit more time than expected due to some documentations.Documentations with the banks in different countries often take longer than anticipated.
