The United Kingdom says it had returned the sum of £70million recovered from a Nigerian.
British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Mr Paul Arkwright, made the disclosure in a chat with journalists in Abuja on Monday.
“A portion of the fund has been in the UK and that was the portion that was returned recently from the UK to Nigeria.
“So, it’s in that context that the 70 million (pounds) was returned.”
“The British government has no intention of keeping one kobo of Nigerian funds in the UK,” said the diplomat, adding “It all must come back to Nigeria.”
“Just as in Nigeria, the UK feels that the judicial process is important, and we have to go through those processes before the money can be returned.”
Arkwright also confirmed that British Prime Minister Theresa May will visit Nigeria on Wednesday as part of her visit to Africa.
