IBORI’S LOOT: Malami’s Statement A Slap On The Cheeks of the People of Delta- Dr. Uboh

Nigeria’s foremost Whistleblower and Chairman, George Uboh Whistleblowers Network (GUWN), Dr. George Uboh has described a Statement made by the Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami as a slap on the cheeks of the good and hardworking people of Delta State.

The British government had on Tuesday 09 March, 2021, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to return the sum of £4.2 million as part of proceeds of crime stolen by the ex-convict former Delta State Governor, James Ibori to the Nigerian Government.

The Attorney-General on Tuesday evening in an interview on Channels TV’s Politics Today as monitored by GUTV, stated that the sum of £4.2 million expected in two weeks’ time from the British government, would not be returned to the coffers of the Delta State government because the crime that led to the diversion of the funds was a federal one.

Malami’s statement drew ire and reactions from experts, citizens and government of Delta state. Dr. Uboh described Malami and the federal government’s decision as not only shocking but discriminatory and a violation of the provision of the Nigerian constitution which amounts to setting up of a bad precedence.
