The Swiss government is to return $321 million to Nigeria that was seized from the family of former President Sani Abacha. The assets were confiscated and repatriated as part of criminal proceedings against Abba Abacha, son of Sani, who ruled Nigeria for five years until his death in 1998. The government of Nigeria made its own statement thanking international partners and vowing to continue its anti-corruption drive, a core policy of President Muhammadu Buhari's administration. We will continue to work to deepen mechanisms not just for asset recovery but for preventing corruption in the first place."
