March 23, 2016 – Former Akwa Ibom State Governor Godswill Akpabio’s Attempt To Transfer Stolen $517Million From UAE To Dominican Republic Blocked, EFCC In Dubai

Former Akwa Ibom State Governor Akpabio has been placed under watch by the EFCC over his attempt to transfer stolen $517 million to the Dominican Republic from his bank accounts in the UAE.

Akpabio’s desperate attempt hit a brickwall because UAE money laundering laws are now strict.

EFCC officials arrived Dubai on Saturday to begin a proper investigation and recover the money.

This is how The Nation is reporting it:

A top source, who spoke in confidence, said: “The Federal Government team has met with those from the UAE on intelligence sharing, the list of those on EFCC radar, the number of highly-placed Nigerians with fat accounts in UAE and those with choice properties in Marina (Dubai), Bur Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Doha.

”Some of the former governors include one from the South-South, two from Northcentral, two from the Northeast, one from the Northwest, and one from the Southwest.

“More than six ex-ministers and a former presidential aide, who is on the run over the $2.1billion arms deals, were said to have acquired choice mansions and malls in UAE. One of the former ministers, who was alleged to own two houses in Dubai, was said to have served as a front for a former First Lady.

  1. my people so unpatriotic, you take our money to another country for them to better their own citizen. this is treason, only capital punishment will curb this menace, drastic situation requires drastic measures!

  2. Buhari strategy is working especially in his campaign against corruption. Lets recover the loots and block the route to where these thieves are draining our resources. If these people cannot find a place to hide the stolen money, they won’t steal again. All trips that Buhari is making Abroad is now paying off. Then he can comfortably restrategize on how to make use of available resources to start rebuilding our collapse economy. Taking $517 million (#110 billion Naira) out of state coffers will definitely create a huge void in the State capital. At least Buhari is acting as a surgeon who tries to prevent Nigeria from bleeding to death. Let’s give him kudos on this.

  3. Some foolish nigerian will still come out to supprt or fight for these thieves oo…We shud also proceed the trial on the street by stoning and condemning them whl the court of law imprison them

    • That is the problem with our ibo compatriots. They dont see anythinggood in Buhari bcos they know that their dream of Biafra cannot materialse as long as buhari is there. They di t have moral values. Akpabio and the rest will definitely not like Buhari bcos he eill not allow them to steal ad they did under the buffoon called GEJ

  4. These idiots must be tried speedily and sentence to long time in prison. Why was Akpabio not imprisoned initially? hypocritical thieve. This is a man i once respect, thinking he was clean. A filthy moron.

  5. Who says that this APC broom is not sweeping? Gawd! My mouth could not close when I mentioned the name of this money. $517m? That is a mouthful.

    May God Himself expose all these looters and bring them to face the grim justice duely reserved for them.

  6. He was the best govenor among his contemporaries. Immagine other govenors that did not do anything in their states like Orji Uzo Kalu and Theodore Orji (ABIA STATE) what they would cart away.

    • Being the best governor is relative. Can you compare the revenue profile of Akwa Ibo and the states you mentioned?

  7. Now that a lot of those wailling waillers have start to understand why Mr. President is always abroad the country will get better. We shall always remain focus on issues that affect our dear country Nigeria

  8. But my Big Guy from the South South was once denying having a bank account or owning properties in the UAE, that if any money or properties are link to him, he should be arrested. Was he telling the truth judging from the current revelations by the EFCC and the intelligence group in Dubai?

  9. PLEASE LET ALL OF US BE PRAYERFUL FOR OUR DEAR PRESIDENT,SO THAT GOD WILL ALWAYS PROTECT HIM ON THIS TASK OF FIGHTING ENEMY AND EVIL POLITICIANS WHO PUT OUR CITICENS ON SUFFER

  10. OMG! $517m in one person’s pocket from one state. Imagine what the value and beauty this money would have added to Akwa Ibom state.
    This is the same man who said EFCC should arrest him if any account or property is linked to his name in any foreign country
    #istandwithbuhari

  11. Bravo my President for a job well done. This is the type leader we cast out votes on. Heartless and insensitivity. Your cup is full, and is time to dance the music. Fool.

  12. My people you ain’t see nothing yet wait until the past president turn then you will appreciate Buhari regime, this definitely a defining moment for us to pray and support this man effort, when he was appointed I knew he is the man that God chose to rescue our Nation from this group of heartless people

  13. This one I support, bcos, with these monies starched abroad
    The foreign banks could give loans at zero interest rate whereas in Nigeria, the mfb’s are struggling to get deposits to do loans at a higher interest rates

  14. 1b Nigerians 1b comments with all this some Nigerians said it is APC PROPAGANDA wen will our eyes open? Open poverty has eaten us that when we hear huge sum of money we get confused and believe dia is no such money in this God blessed Nigeria God help us all LONG LIVE GMB LONG LIVE NIGERIA.

  15. I think ya’all gonna do same. It’s the Nigerian state of mind in a system that was designed to fail.

  16. I just pray for the President to make his 2 terms as allowed by the constitution. I know by then Nigeria would have been transformed beyond Imagination. If all the looted funds such as the one being reportedly stolen by Akpabio can be repatriated to Nigeria, there will be many jobs created and Nigerians can now wake up one day without hearing any bad news such as Boko haram, kidnapping, soka and the rest of the vices. God will continue to bless Nigeria. amen

  17. May God Almighty safe gourds our Dear President BUHARI To Succeed on His agenda towards Nigeria. May God let Our So call Lawyers cooperate with the Actions of Mr President. If Justice can be allowed Nigeria will change for better!

  18. May God Almighty safe gourds our Dear President BUHARI To Succeed on His agenda towards Nigeria. May God let Our So call Lawyers cooperate with the Actions of Mr President. If Justice can be allowed Nigeria will change for better!

  19. May God Almighty safe gourds our Dear President BUHARI To Succeed on His agenda towards Nigeria. May God let Our So call Lawyers cooperate with the Actions of Mr President. If Justice can be allowed Nigeria will change for better!

  20. only Almighty ALLAH knows there evil plan.continue ur work pmb,nothing bad can cross ur path Insha ALLAH.

  21. I am not surprised, that occultic man has always been a pretender all his life. Let him and his families dance to the rhythm he plays.period.

  22. And this idiot akpabio will be sitting in our federal house to make law for us again? my pple do know how many graduate will this money create jobs for? God will not forgive Akpabio.

  23. You looted your country money to enrich yourself and family .kindly tell us how you are going to spend this money.Baba Buhari don’t spared this kind of heartless people

  24. First of, once Akpabio is found to be the owner of this funds for real, he should made to resign his membership of the senate of the federal republic of Nigeria, tried and sent to a very long jail term, he has no shame. See how he carries on in the sacred chamber of the senate, he even grabed the senate minority leadership as soon as he completes his tenure as governor of akwa ibom state even though he is a first time member of the National Assembly. Akpabio is a power hungry and power monger.
    We hear he has cash starched in a akwa ibom state house right under the nose of his lackey Udom Emmanuel to watch over. The last time the dss raided the place the state government quickly claimed ownership of the money, a big lie yet the dss left the huge cash behind just like that now this. This guys are various.

  25. The judgement of God on our corrupt leaders has just began. If we allow greed and personal agenda to die in the little indices of our daily affairs, Nigeria will take an upward turn and be great. May God continually guide and lead our God-sent President.

  26. We have many of this kind element of thieves in our government parastatal, why can’t Nigeria government remove him immediately and send him to long term jail bekus he has set the AKwa ibom state back ward and the Nation @ large.

  27. why are we still allowing thieve like Akpabio to make laws for us in our government house,he should be in EFCC deny now, and we have so many of them like Bukola Saraki and many others.Oh Nigerians thieves are the one ruling us, cry out Nigerians for freedom.
