Sani Abacha: Lawmakers’ Tell Buhari Not To Pay $17m (₦6,096bn) To Lawyers’

Unic Press UK: During a plenary session of the Nigerian House of Representatives, the lower chamber of the country’s bicameral legislature, the lawmakers urged President Muhammadu Buhari to terminate all the moves by his government to pay $17 million (₦6,096 billion) to a team of lawyers who were said to have been appointed by the Attorney General of the Federation, Ababukar Malami, for the recovery of public funds stolen by the former Head of State General Sani Abacha (retd).

The lawmakers also resolved to set up an Ad-hoc Committee to carry out an investigation of the circumstances that led to the government decision to engage the services of another team of lawyers to do a job that had been concluded.

Mark Gbillah (APC-Gwer East/Gwer West) had submitted that: In 2014, a Swiss attorney Enrico Monfrini, who was engaged by the Nigerian government in 1999, completed the assignment in relation to repatriating public funds that was stolen and illegally stashed in a foreign country by late Sani Abacha.

 

Gbillah further said that Mofrini was duly paid by the Nigerian government for his legal services, wondering how the current Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Ababukar Malami, came about engaging the services of another team of lawyers to carry out a job that had been completed.
