Federal Government Releases Names Of Looters
The Minister of Information, Lai Mohammad, released the list during a press conference in Lagos on Friday.
Mohammad said the individuals include officials in the past government.
The names in the list revealed by the Federal Government include PDP chieftains who are currently being tried for corruption and financial crimes.
“The PDP has challenged us to name the looters under their watch. They said they did not loot the treasury. Well, I am sure they know that the treasury was looted dry under their watch. Yet they decided to grandstand. This shows the hollowness of their apology,” Mohammed said as he released the names.
Find the list below and the allegations against them by the Federal Government…
1 PDP Chairman Uche Secondus
2. Then PDP Financial Secretary
3. Then National Publicity Secretary Olisah Metuh
4. Dr Raymond Dokpesi, Chairman of DAAR Communications
5. Former SSA to President Jonathan, Dudafa Waripamo-Owei
6. Former President Jonathan’s Cousin Robert Azibaola
The decision by the APC government to reveal the names of the alleged looters and the funds stolen is in response to the opposition party, PDP’s, challenge to the government to name those alleged to have looted the country and destroyed the economy.
Mohammed said this list is just a tip of the iceberg, and the APC did not make these cases up as some of them currently have cases in court.
“They are in court and the records are available. Some of the people on this list are seeking to plea bargain, and that is a fact.
“We insist that Nigeria was looted blind under the watch of the PDP and that the starting point in tendering an apology is for them to return the loot,” he said.
