President Muhammadu Buhari-led government on Wednesday was charged by the House of Representatives to return the £4.2million Ibori loot to Delta State.
The lawmakers in their statement on Wednesday noted that the funds were looted from Delta State and should be rightly returned to the state.
They further stated that funds are needed for the infrastructural development of the state.
The lawmakers representing Delta State, however, stated that the total money is £6.2 million and not £4.2 million as is being reported.
The House also asked the Federal Ministry of Finance to direct the Attorney General of Federation, Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, and give the House all particulars relating to the recovered money.
Recall that the Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of Federation, Abubakar Malami, while speaking on the development said President Muhammadu Buhari has directed that the loots be used for the completion of the second Niger Bridge, the Lagos-Ibadan expressway and the Abuja to Kano expressway.
In a related development, former Presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC), Omoyele Sowore, has asked students in Delta State to demand the £4.2m looted assets by a former Governor of Delta State, James Ibori.
