UK returns £70m to Nigeria

UK raises threat level after Manchester terror attack

As British Prime Minister Theresa May visits Nigeria and two other African countries this week, the UK said it had returned £70 million recovered from a Nigerian, who was convicted of fraud by an Italian court.

The British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Mr Paul Arkwright, explained that a portion of the fund has been in the UK and that was the portion that was returned recently from the UK to Nigeria.

The envoy did not mention the identity of the Nigerian involved in the offence, but said more funds would be repatriated.

He stressed that his country was working with the Nigerian government to accelerate the legal process of returning the looted money.
