See names and amount of looted money returned by some of Nigeria’s elite who have been milking the country dry through illicit acquisition of wealth.
This is likely the list of those who returned stolen money from the government that is about N115billion. According to information gathered by The Nation yesterday, the list include some politically exposed persons, ex-military chiefs and some of those involved in the $115million poll bribery scandal.
It is not yet clear if the Federal Government will release the list of names of all the looters who returned their loots as they had promised.
Besides, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is said to be tracking about $3.9billion believed to have been stolen.

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.”
