Looters list contains names of people FG recovered assets from – Owasonoye
The ‘looters lists’ released by the Federal Government contained names of people from whom government recovered assets from, Prof. Bolaji Owasonoye, Presidential Advisory Committee against Corruption (PACAC), has said.
Looters Owasonoye said in an interview with the Correspondent of the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in New York that they were not people who had been convicted.
He said: “The public has been saying we want to know the people from whom you have been recovering assets, not necessarily the people who have been convicted.
“And the government put out information to say we’ve recovered assets from these people and then there is this hullabaloo.
“Now, as you know, one of the very successful areas of government anti-corruption agenda is in asset recovery. “Some by court proceedings, many by voluntary returns.
People know that investigations are going on, it would get to them, they voluntarily release money”.
