February 4, 2017 – EFCC In UAE To Recover Looted Funds Stashed In Dubai By Corrupt Nigerian Politicians

  • Attorney-General of the Federation/Justice Minister Abubakar Malami and Economic and Financial Crimes Commission(EFCC) Chairman Ibrahim Magu have landed in Dubai,United Arab Emirates (UAE) in a renewed battle to retrieve the looted funds allegedly stashed in that country by Nigerian politicians.
  • The two ranking officials, we can now report,are already comparing notes with their UAE counterparts on how to repatriate the money back home.
  • It is Malami’s and Magu’s second trip to UAE in one year on the issue.
  • Choice mansions and malls in Dubai are some of the assets traced to the suspects, including serving public officers.

The Federal Government has in its possession a list of such Politically Exposed Persons( PEPs) and their assets.

The current trip by Malami and Magu comes on the heels of on the spot investigation of the bank accounts and landed properties of the affected suspects by a team of EFCC detectives,sources familiar with the matter said yesterday.

It was during one of the trips that the detectives uncovered two luxury apartments, worth 74m Dirham, which they believed to belong to former Petroleum Resources Minister Diezani Alison-Madueke in Dubai.

Others exposed by the investigation to have looted cash and properties in Dubai include a former First Lady, five ex-governors, six former ministers, a former Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Customs Service( NCS), and one or two former presidential aides.

One of the sources said yesterday that the Malami/Magu trip is a follow up to “the pact between the Federal Government and the UAE authorities last year.”

The source said the list of the suspects “will be submitted to UAE authorities for verification and confiscation. The UAE government has promised the Federal Government that it will not shield any suspect.

“Some of the assets under investigation have been traced to some serving and former governors, ex-ministers and some beneficiaries of the $2.1billion arms scandal.

  1. May God continues to bless, guide, and protect president Mohammed Buhari in his fight against corruption, public looting, and embezzlement by Nigerian criminal, crooked, and corrupt governors, senators, Rep, commissioners, and directors of various govt. Agencies. Corruption, looting, mismanagement, bribery, judicial injustice, and unpatriotic behavior of our past leaders in over 40 years are the reasons why our dear nation is socially, economically, and fiscally backwards despite trillions of dollars realized over the period from crude oil revenues. Nigerian people will never enjoy the dividend of democracy and good governance in this generation and many to come if corruption is not dealt with and destroy from both the public and private sectors. Over $300 billions of the people’s money is stocked in Dubai by looters and criminals while our education, infrastructure, healthcare, and security are crumbling daily. This is why those enemies of Nigeria will do anything evil, spend billions of dollars to poison and kill President Buhari because is not business as asually again. PMB is doing his best with the little resources and help from crooked officials, but those demonic and heartless politicians are physically and spiritually working against his good plan and intention. We must pray for PMB, his humble wife, vice-president Osinbajo,and those few good Nigerians working with them for a better and Prosperous Nigeria. It is so shameful that heartless human beings who are definitely enemies of the suffering people will stock away billions of our money abroad while our nation is going down daily and people are living in abject poverty. These wicked souls have destroyed God’s plan for our supposed to be a great nation. May God protect PMB from their arrows, poison, and attacks. Amen.
