A Federal Government delegation, comprising of the Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of the Federation, Mr. Abubakar Malami; Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Mr. Ibrahim Magu and crack detectives from the anti-graft agency, yesterday, started comparing collated intelligence notes with their United Arab Emirates(UAE) counterparts on some Nigerian former Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs).
This move is ahead of the repatriation of over $200billion stashed away by 7 former governors, 6 former ministers, a fleeing ex-presidential aide in form of cash and/or acquired properties in the UAE.
Implicated in this UAE loot saga are some of the aforementioned former public officers and about 5 chieftains of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) who have fat accounts in UAE and choice properties in Marina (Dubai), Bur Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Doha.
To this end, some mansions belonging to the former PEPs and their cronies or fronts may also be seized by the EFCC officials who arrived Dubai on Saturday.
The Nigerian delegation went to UAE in line with an agreement with the Federal Government. Recall President Muhammadu Buhari in January signed a “Judicial Agreement on Extradition, Transfer of Sentenced Persons, Mutual Legal Assistance on Criminal Matters, and Mutual Legal Assistance on Criminal and Commercial Matters, which includes the recovery and repatriation of stolen wealth”.
