Mr. Abubakar Malami, Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, has reiterated the United Kingdom’s commitment to ensure that all stolen funds are returned to Nigeria.

 Malami said this when he returned from the International Anti-Corruption Summit which was held in London last week. A summit attended by world leaders including President Mohammadu Buhari.

He furthered that there was no estimate of funds concealed in the UK but there have been a record of it adding that Nigeria did not have any bilateral talks with other nations.

In his words, “There were no sideline talks as such, but then there has been a bilateral meeting, other than the conference, in which express commitment has been shown by the leadership of the UK towards the idea of loot recovery.

“The UK has shown extra commitment apart from the resolution that was unanimously passed at the conference. Nigeria was treated as a priority in terms of execution of such commitment.”

He said that very soon Nigeria will start reaping the benefits of all the international conferences it has been part of, he admitted that the decision made with other nations in London was not under the control of Nigeria.

“This is not something that we are exclusively in control of, but honestly there is a great goodwill and great commitment working mutually. So, very soon, Nigeria will start reaping the benefit,” he said.

Repatriation of proceeds of corruption to the victim nation is part of the resolution reached at the conference.
