US gave President names of oil thieves – Report

A source close to President Muhammadu Buhari has revealed that the United States of America gave the Nigerian leader names of oil thieves during his recent official visit.

The source is said to be one of the persons who accompanied Buhari on the US trip, according to Punch.

“I can tell you that the President already has the list of names of the people engaging in the stealing of Nigeria’s oil. The list, when released by the President, will shock Nigerians. But let’s wait and see first,” the source said.

Another source in the Presidency also confirmed the existence of the list but said Buhari “has been keeping the list to himself.”

The US is also said to have given the president a separate list containing the name of oil bunkerers.

Buhari had revealed during his US trip that some former ministers had stolen barrels of Nigeria’s oil and stored the funds received in personal accounts.

He said further that the ministers in question will be arrested while the said funds will be retrieved.
