FG To Publish Names Of treasury Looters

Federal government on July 5 order that the list and names of looters should be made known to the general public.  This development came up long after the Federal Executive Council meetings.

The court had ordered the Federal Government to “immediately release to Nigerians, information about the names of high-ranking public officials from whom public funds were recovered and the circumstances under which funds were recovered, as well as the exact amount recovered from each public official”.

The judgment was delivered Justice Hadiza Rabiu Shagari following a Freedom of Information suit number: FHC/CS/964/2016 brought by Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP).

According to the minister of justice and attorney general, Abubakar Malami, the federal government was in support of the agreement and they vow to released the names to Nigerians so as to know who the treasury looters are.

The Attorney-General explained that the policy was geared towards enhancing enforcement and sanctions in the ongoing anti-corruption war in the country.
