Human rights activist, Omoyele Sowore, on Wednesday called on students in Delta State to demand the £4.2m looted assets by a former Governor of the state, James Ibori.
The British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Catriona Laing, on Tuesday, disclosed that the two parties had reached a decision to return the looted assets worth £4.2 million to Nigeria recovered from Ibori’s friends and family members.
The Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of Federation, Abubakar Malami, while speaking on the development said President Muhammadu Buhari has directed that the loots be used for the completion of the second Niger Bridge, the Lagos-Ibadan expressway and the Abuja to Kano expressway.
However, the former Presidential candidate of the African Action Congress, in a post on Twitter said the loot should be spent on schools in Delta State and not on federal government projects.
The tweet reads: “The recovered loot should be used to pay students of higher institutions in Delta. They must demand that the £4.2m Ibori loot being repatriated from the UK must be spent on schools in the state instead of accepting to pay exorbitant school fees like the N150k being charged at Delta State University. It is your money.”
