Social sharing

The United States Department of Justice said it has transferred over $20.6m to the Federal Government by an August 23 agreement between the governments to repatriate assets stolen by late dictator, General Sani Abacha, and his co-conspirators.

According to a statement published on the DoJ’s website on Thursday, the repatriation brings the total amount forfeited and returned by the US in this case to approximately $332.4m.

In 2020, the department repatriated over $311.7m of the forfeited assets that had been located in the Bailiwick of Jersey.

Last year, the United Kingdom enforced the US judgment against the additional $20.6m.
