Abacha loot: CIRDDOC warns FG over Recovered loot


Civil Resource Development and Documentation Centre,  has asked the Federal Government not to allow the recovered $322.5m Abacha loot to be diverted by corrupt public officials.

It was stated during an event tagged ‘The Monitoring of Recovered Assets in Nigeria Through Transparency and Accountability Project’ organised by the group  in Amawbia, Anambra State, by the  Project Advisor of CIRDDOC,  Chief Ralph Ndigwe.

He also commended the Federal Government and the international community for helping the country to recover  looted funds.

He said the CIRDDOC would train monitors in six  local government areas in  Anambra State to assist the body in its activities.

He regretted that Anambra  is the only state  in the South-East  that had enrolled for the programme.

Anambra State Coordinator of the National Cash Transfer Office, Mr Ralph Enukora, complained that  the members of  staff of the organisation had been   attacked  following   the removal of   the names of persons  who were wrongly included in the programme.

He said, “Some people have been targeted wrongly, and their names enrolled for the programme, and they disguised as poor people to collect money, even though they are known to have means of livelihood.
