The federal government has said it is planning to repatriate another $321million Abacha loot through a tripartite assets sharing agreement between the Island of Jersey, the United States of America and Nigeria.

Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, disclosed this after the Federal Executive Council meeting chaired by President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday.
