A claim has been evened out against the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami.
The claim is that he baffled the recuperation of $60 billion taken from the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC). The cash is supposed to be buried in Texas, United States.
Tosin Ojaomo, the exceptional examiner to the ancient Special Presidential Investigation Panel for Recovery of Public Property made the allegation, Premium Times reports.
In a quick response, the media helper to the AGF, Umar Gwandu, said the charge needs merit and ought to be excused.
Gwando provoked Ojaomo to back up his charge with proof.
“We challenge anyone, who says the head legal officer got any sum, we challenge such individual to present proof.
“The AGF has a record of working with the bringing home of assets from the United States of America, the U.K., Island of Jersey and different domains across the globe. He has never had any set of experiences of remaining as an encumbrance or forestalling the recuperation of any plundered Nigerian resource.”

The senior attorney contended that the assets are claimed by the UK government as per its laws enabling it to seize continues of wrongdoing from people sentenced through the British legal framework.
In the mean time, the arrangement by the national government to utilize the public assets plundered by Ibori, for the development of the Second Niger Bridge, Abuja-Kano Road, and the Lagos-Ibadan street has been dismissed.
