Falana slams FG, says Ibori loot belongs to Delta
Written by admin on March 10, 2021
Human rights lawyer, Mr. Femi Falana (SAN), says the loot recovered from convicted ex-Governor of Delta State, James Ibori, belongs to the state and not the Federal Government.
He, therefore, faulted the Federal Government’s plan to use the recently recovered £4.2m to construct Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, Abuja-Kano railway and other federal projects.
The Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami (SAN), had said one of the reasons the recovered loot could not be given to the Delta State Government was that part of the conditions for the repatriation of the fund was that it would be used for certain projects.
