Abuja - A former Minister of Finance may be invited over the missing £22.5 million recovered from the family of the late Gen. Sani Abacha.
The money, which was recovered from the Island of Jersey, could not be traced.
But all legal hurdles for the repatriation of the $480million recovered from the family by the United States have been cleared, Attorney-General and Justice Minister Abubakar Malami (SAN) said last night.
He said the Federal Government will soon receive the funds.

According to records, the late Head of State allegedly stashed the funds through a Lebanese called Bhojwani.
But when the Office of the AGF was alerted by a whistle-blower, the Dr. Jonathan administration opened talks with the Attorney-General of the Island of Jersey.
The AG of the Island of Jersey cooperated with the government, leading to the repatriation of the £22.5m.
