IT’LL BE INJUSTICE, IMPUNITY NOT TO RETURN IBORI LOOT TO DELTA — OKOWA’S AIDE – PUNCH PG.9
What is the position of the Delta State government on the Ibori loot that has now been repatriated?
Many people have spoken about it but negotiation is still on. We as a government have told them that the money belongs to Delta State and it should be given to us. That’s our position.
Delta State government once shied away from claiming the fund, now many people are of the opinion that it cannot turn around to lay claim to the funds, what changed?
It is not true. If you were following the event, the only time the state government talked about money not missing was the time when it had to do with £15m, which was a stand-alone matter, not the general loot. This is a different matter entirely.
