Switzerland to return $380million Abacha loot to Nigeria

The Swiss government has concluded plans to return $380 million to Nigeria, which is part of money stashed in Swiss banks by former dictator, Gen. Sani Abacha while he was in power.

Geneva prosecutors said today Tuesday March 17th that they ordered the money seized in Luxembourg starting in 2006 & was officially confiscated last year following an agreement between Nigeria and the Abacha family under which FG dropped its case against Abacha's son, Abba Abacha.

Switzerland has previously returned to Nigeria more than $700 million that Abacha stashed in Swiss accounts. If the Swiss government makes this new cash return, it would bring the total amount of Abacha's loot returned so far to $1.080 billion.
