Abacha Loot: SERAP Sues Buhari Over Failure To Publish Agreement With U.S.

The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has filed a lawsuit against President Muham­madu Buhari over his failure to publish copy and details of the agreement the Federal Government recently signed with the United States for the repatriation of $23 million stolen by the late dictator, Sani Abacha.

Joined in the suit as respon­dent is the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN).

Recall that the United States government had in August signed an agreement with the Federal Government to repa­triate $23 million Abacha loot to Nigeria.

The $23 million adds to the $311.7 million Abacha loot re­patriated from the U.S. to Nige­ria in 2020.

The suit filed on behalf of SERAP by its lawyers, Ko­lawole Oluwadare and Ms. Atinuke Adejuyigbe, read in part: “The Nigerian constitu­tion, Freedom of Information Act, and the country’s interna­tional obligations rest on the principle that citizens should have access to information regarding their government’s activities.”

However, no date has been fixed for the hearing of the suit.
