The Federal Government has announced plans to publish names of treasury looters as ordered by a Federal High Court in Lagos.

The Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, disclosed this to State House correspondents on Wednesday after the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting.

The court had ordered the Federal Government to “immediately release to Nigerians, information about suspected looters and the circumstances under which funds were recovered, as well as the exact amount recovered from each public official”.

The judgment was delivered by Justice Hadiza Rabiu Shagari following a Freedom of Information suit brought by the Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP).

Malami told reporters in Abuja that the government is in agreement with the ruling and will carry out the order as long as it does not amount to sub judice.

He also hinted that the Council has approved a roadmap for the implementation of the newly developed anti-corruption strategy.

The Attorney-General explained that the policy is geared towards enhancing enforcement and sanctions in the ongoing anti-corruption war in the country.
