  • 06.07.2018


    Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday declared a "national emergency on corruption", as he signed a new executive order to freeze suspected ill-gotten gains.
    He also revealed public funds allegedly stolen by those on trial or under investigation topped 1.6 billion dollars.
    As Deborah Amuwo reports, this amount is enough to finance much-needed government projects.
