Why USA refused to release Abacha’s stolen $308 million – EFCC secretary explains


“Two weeks ago, I was privileged to be on the team that went to recover $308million for Nigeria. They are from Washington.

“You know what the Oyinbos told us when we wanted to sign the treaty?
They had the audacity to look into our eyes and said: “If you people steal this money again, we will collect it back from you.”.

“I stood up against them, I said: “We are not a corrupt nation. A few people might have stolen money, but Nigeria is not a corrupt nation. “.

“And you know it is not their fault, (they said that) because they have seen recovered loot being looted again.”.
