AGF Malami denies involvement in the illegal sale of 48 million barrels of crude oil


The Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, has denied any involvement in the illegal sale of 48 million barrels of crude oil export from 2014 till date.

Malami made this known when he appeared before the House of Reps ad-hoc committee investigating the alleged loss of over $2.4 billion in unremitted oil revenue.

Speaking on details of accounts into which recoveries were paid, Malami explained that the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) maintained these accounts, not the Office of the Attorney General of the Federation.

As regard details of the whistle-blowers as requested by the committee, the Minister of Justice said that disclosing any information violates confidentiality.

Chairman of the committee, Hon. Mark Gbillah, had last week announced that Malami will face the legislative panel on April 27.

He said the committee obtained reports that Malami received funds from outside the country through the whistle-blower policy but did not remit it to the federation account.
