Nigerians attack Buhari over loot report, point out inaccuracies

06 June 2016, 06:48

Abuja - Nigerian citizens have reacted negatively to a report released by the Federal Government detailing the amount of stolen loot that has been recovered since the beginning of President Muhammadu Buhari's tenure in office.

According to a Naij report, many members of the public have called for the names of those found guilty of stealing money to be published along with the figures in what they perceive as a move towards transparency.

Femi Falana, Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), has lambasted the report, calling out inaccuracies in the figures presented and claiming that the total amount of loot recovered amounts to far less than what was presented in the report.

"Let me tell you this: That list is not correct. I know that the EFCC has recovered about $3.1bn. I think this is just the report from a department; it is not a comprehensive one," Falana stated.

Falana has indicated that the Government may not release the names of looters just yet as fears persist that those who have stolen money may not continue to come forward.

Augustine Alegeh, President of the Nigerian Bar Association, has called on President Buhari to fulfill his promise by releasing the names of those who have looted Government funds in the past.

Members of the Ijaw National Congress have also lashed out at Buhari, stating that he has succumbed to pressure from looters and that the lack of names in the report indicates this.

Federal Government released its loot report on Saturday, Premium Times reports.
