The group said it would sue the CCB if a probe of those indicted in the PanamaPapers did not start in 14 days, decrying the extent to which Nigerian public officials had gone in breaching the code of conduct by going to conceal stolen wealth in offshore jurisdictions,

In a statement on Sunday by its Executive Director, Adetokunbo Mumuni, SERAP said it was important for the CCB to leverage on the revelations in the PanamaPapers in demonstration of its readiness to combat the abuse of asset declaration requirements by Nigerian public officials.
It said unless the CCB probed and prosecuted the high-ranking public officers indicted in the PanamaPapers, it would lose public credibility.
