Another $321m Stolen By Abacha Coming Back To Home

A delegation led by the Switzerland Minister of Foreign Affairs, Didier Burkhalter, are expected to have a meeting with Vice-President Yemi Osinbaj and the Nigerian Minister on Foreign AFfairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, on Tuesday.

The meeting would be centered on how to repatriate another $321million looted by late Military Head of State, Sani Abacha, and seized by the Swiss government.

Pascal Holliger, an official at the Switzerland embassy in Nigeria, who confirmed the meeting, stated that: "Yes, our foreign Minister is on his way to Nigeria on Tuesday.

“He is coming on a working visit to Nigeria. During the visit, he would open the Consular General’s office in Lagos and meet with the Vice President of Nigeria and the Minister of Foreign Affairs to discuss the issue of the repatriation of the second tranche of the Abacha loot.”

Some civil society and anti-corruption groups, who heard about the impending meeting, have written to the Presidency, urging the government to ensure the money is put to good use when returned.
