US Moves to Block Buhari From Receiving Abacha's Loot

The Unites States Congress may soon vote on a bill that will allow President Barack Obama and his government keep all of Abacha's loot recovered in the U.S.


According to reports, if the vote is passed, the loot will be held in trust by the US government for victims of boko haram insurgency.

The bill tagged H.R. 528 was sponsored by Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee who represents the 18th District of Texas.

 Speaking on Wednesday (May 11) at a Congressional subcommittee hearing on the U.S. role in helping Nigeria confront Boko Haram and other threats in Northern Nigeria, Ms. Jackson Lee sought the Committee’s support for H.R. 528.
