The much-awaited listed of looters has finally surfaced. Nigeria’s recovered loot now has figures attached to it
While President Mohammadu Buhari and his coterie of media aides missed the Thursday deadlines, the list is finally out.
In a tweet by the official handle of the presidency, the list was released detailing headlines of returned amounts and assets.

Our friends at Budgit have done what they know how to do best. They have have taken their time to quickly put the data in infographics so that it is easily understandable.
What is conspicuously missing on the list is are names of actual ‘looters’ who returned various sums of money.
Without saying too much, the infographics says it all.
Nigeria has launched an all-out onslaught on corruption. At his swearing in ceremony, Buhari declared ‘I belong to everybody and I belong to nobody’. His statement was a marching order to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Nigeria’s allegedly complicit anti-corruption agency.
The coming months might see the actual names of ‘looters’ released should court cases determining the culpability of those fingered in the massive crackdown get concluded.
