It was reported that Lai Mohammed had released the first list of treasury looters at a press conference in Lagos on Friday.

The second list was released by Mohammed, who stated that those complaining that the first list was too short did not understand that it was strategically released as a teaser.

He said, “At the press conference where the list was released, I did say it was a tip of the iceberg. Apparently, this does not mean anything to people whose style is to comment on issues they barely understand, or just to shoot down anything coming from the government.

“The Federal Government has a large number of alleged looters on its list. What was the PDP expecting when it challenged the FG to name the looters of the public treasury under the party’s watch? Did the PDP actually believe that the massive looting under its watch was a joke?,” he queried.

The second list of alleged looters includes the following…

Former NSA Sambo Dasuki: Based on EFCC investigations and findings alone (this is beside the ongoing $2.1 billion military equipment scandal), a total of N126 billion, over $1.5 billion and 5.5 million British Pounds was allegedly embezzled through his office.

Former Petroleum Resources Minister Dieziani Alison-Madukwe: In just one of the cases the EFCC is investigating involving her, about N23 billion is alleged to have been embezzled. She is also involved in the Strategic Alliance Contracts of the NNPC, where the firms of Jide Omokore and Jide Aluko got oil blocks but never paid government taxes and royalty. About $3 billion was involved. The Federal Government is charging Omokore and Aluko and will use all legal instruments local and international to ensure justice.

Rtd. Lt.-Gen. Kenneth Minimah: N13.9 billion. N4.8 billion recovered by EFCC in cash and property.

Lt.-Gen. Azubuike Ihejirika: N4.5 billion. N29m recovered by the EFCC so far.

Alex Barde, former Chief of Defence Staff: N8 billion, and EFCC recovered almost N4 billion in cash and property already.

Inde Dikko: former CG Customs: N40 billion, and N1.1 billion in cash recovered in cash and choice properties.

Air Marshal Adesola Amosun: N21.4 billion. N2.8 billion recovered in cash. 28 properties and 3 vehicles also recovered.

  1. This is why they are attacking my beloved PMB, including writing useless letters, making inciting statements and others, but Nigerians are solidly behind PMB because this degree of ferocious fight against corruption and level of recoveries has not been seen in this our country before now. All those corrupt fat cats,both young & old, have failed and will continue to fail.

  2. Seems those in APC are “saints”. Can’t find any single individual from the party in the list. Names like Rotimi Ameachi, Obanikoro, Murtala Nyako, even Bukola Saraki should have made the list.

    • When they calling looters of Federal level you bad bele people will be talking of Ameachi or Fashola Fed Government have not focused on State let the State when those people govern speak out and say the figure. This one the Federal government is mentioning is just from the Office of the NSA Dasuki those who collect money with No reason. Government have mentioned that of NNPC, CBN, Ministries, Shippers Council, military etc. You people supporting corruption are crying over small list of thieves

  3. The fight against corruption is an institutional one. There is no single organ of government or party that can unilaterally lay claims to have won the battle on those that have been alleged to have looted the national treasury. All arms of governments (the legislature, executive and the judiciary) need to work together to nip this ugly canker-worm on the board. Many of the cases mentioned are yet to be convicted and we want this battle not to be seen as a party issue but one that is holistic and all-embracing. Furthermore, the executive including the anti-graft agencies should do a thorough job in this regard and not to be selective in its approach. More bills should also be passed in the national assembly to make corruption unattractive business in the country while the Revenue, Mobilisation and Fiscal commission needs to be very effective in its regulatory functions of the remuneration of legislators.Besides, the members of the judiciary needs to be above board in interpreting the law and in checking the excesses of other arms of government. There should be speedy dispensation of justice.

  4. Jeez!!! Its really amazing that we still have any money left. Its not enough to mention these PDP names, they should be prosecuted and made to return these monies with interest. Hopefully, we will start with the APC looters some day.
