Nigerians React As UK Court Seizes Abacha's N81bn Loot
 

A storm of reactions by Nigerians has greeted the news that the sum of £211,000,000 (N81.9bn) laundered by former Nigerian dictator, General Sani Abacha, has been seized from a bank in Jersey, Channels Islands by a British court.

A report monitored on UK Metro by Naija News, says the money was put in accounts held in Jersey by Doraville Properties Corporation, a British Virgin Islands company.

The Newspaper noted that the government is holding on to the money until authorities in Jersey, the United States and Nigeria come to an agreement on how it should be distributed.

Abacha was a Nigerian army officer and de facto president between 1993 until his death in 1998.

Moments after the news broke, Nigerians took to the micro-blogging site, Twitter, to air their opinions on the loot.
