Nigerian President: UK must return stolen assets

l_ead18a011fb144cc8f3f62ce2bdaa47d[1]UK’s Israel-First prime minister, David Cameron, is holding a major anti-corruption conference in London on Thursday. Nigeria’s Sharia President Mahammadu Buhari, Afghan president Ashraf Ghani and US secretary of state John Kerry, a Crypto-Jew, are attending the conference.

Ahead of the talks, David Cameron was caught on camera telling Queen Elizabeth II that the leaders of some “fantastically corrupt” countries were attending, adding that Nigeria and Afghanistan were “possibly the two most corrupt countries in the world“. A spokesman for Buhari said the comments were “embarrassing” and reflected “an old snapshot of Nigeria”.

On Wednesday, Nigerian president Muhammadu Buhari urged Britain to return assets stolen by corrupt officials in pointed remarks after prime minister David Cameron’s stupid statement.

I am not going to demand any apology from anybody. What I am demanding is the return of the assets,” Buhari said.

Buhari noted the case of Diepreye Alamieyeseigha, a former governor of oil-rich Bayelsa state who was detained in London on charges of money laundering in 2005, but skipped bail by disguising himself as a woman.

Alamieyeseigha, who died in Nigeria in October, left behind “his bank account and fixed assets, which Britain is prepared to hand over to us. This is what I’m asking for“, Buhari said.

Around $37bn (£25.6bn) in stolen money from Nigeria has been routed through London, Nigeria’s anti-corruption chief, Ibrahim Mahu, said at the conference.

Over the years 2014 to 2015, the former administration brought in not less than $37bn into London from Nigeria. They take away oil, and they route the money through London – we suspect not less than $37bn,” he said.

Last month, David Cameron in an interview with ITV News Robert Peston admitted that he sold for £31,500 Panama-based off-shore funds before becoming prime minister.

How ironic, the conference is held in London, the city reputed as the money laundering capital of the world by introducing a new corporate offence for executives who fail to prevent fraud or money laundering inside their companies.
