The Federal Government has released 23 more names of people who allegedly looted funds from the government’s coffers.
The first list of looters was released by the minister of information and culture, Lai Mohammed on Friday, March 30, 2018.
Speaking on the latest list, the information minister said that the first list was a teaser.
Mohammed also said that the names on the list were released based on verifiable facts.
According to Channels TV, the minister released the list today, Sunday, April 1, 2018.
He said ”At the press conference where the list was released, I did say it was a tip of the iceberg. Apparently, this does not mean anything to people whose style is to comment on issues they barely understand, or just to shoot down anything coming from the government.
“The Federal Government has a large number of alleged looters on its list. What was the PDP expecting when it challenged the FG to name the looters of the public treasury under the party’s watch? Did the PDP actually believe that the massive looting under its watch was a joke?”

SERAP attacks Lai Mohammed
Meanwhile, the Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP)has described the looters list as clumsy, arbitrary and selective.
