EFCCPolitically exposed persons, former military chiefs, electoral officials and government agencies topped the list of those behind the N115billion refunded to the federal government in the last one year, it has been revealed.
The revelation came less than 24 hours after the federal government released what it called an interim report on the financial and assets recoveries made by the various government agencies.
The report fell below expectation of some Nigerians, who anticipated that identities of those behind the alleged looting of the treasury would be named and shamed.
However, a glimpse of the likely list of some of those behind the huge refund has been published as follows: $3.1b from Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) accounts (the money was paid to the government-owned oil company by the Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas (NLNG) Limited); $1m seized from a former Chief of Air Staff; National Broadcasting Commission (N10,061,172,600); another ex-Chief of Air Staff (N2.3b); an ex-presidential aide (N900m); a businessman (N750m); an ex-governor of Delta State ($15m); an ex-Chief of Staff and others (N420m); an ex-Minister (N140m); and an ex-Military Administrator (N100m).
Others are officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Oyo and Ogun (N359millon); a former Minister (N2m); a former state Speaker N1m; and N580 million (£2 million) in jewelry, allegedly from a former minister.
Justifying government’s decision to reverse itself on naming and shaming the alleged looters, an EFCC source said: “We cannot release the names of those affected because some of them are already on trial before the court. We do not want to take any prejudicial action. We have been advised against doing so.
“As soon as it is legally convenient, we will release the full list”.
