The Nigerian Government released a list of looters some weeks back and now they are prepared to release another list that would feature the names of former Governors, Ministers and Bankers

The list is expected to contain names of people that are yet to be arraigned for corruption charges.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, had earlier disclosed that 55 persons stole N1.34tn under the former President’s watch. The Minister also released a list of 29 names who he claims took money from the office of the former National Security Adviser, Col. Sabo Dasuki (retd.).

The Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption, PACAC, Chairman, Prof. Itse SaG.ay (SAN) confirmed this to reporters. He said the names of 55 persons that allegedly looted N1.34tn under Jonathan’s regime were not in the lists of looters released by the Federal Government.

SaG.ay added that he was very sure that the Federal Government would publish the names of these alleged looters.

“Yes, I’m sure. In fact, there is a paper containing all their names, the charges against them, how far their cases have gone, some of them have never been charged. That list includes former governors, ministers, bankers and so on. That is another list entirely.”

“I don’t want to mention any names for now. There are people on that list that the court declared that the EFCC (Economic and Financial Crimes Commission) had no right to prosecute for technical reasons, not for substantive reasons.” He said.
