Nigeria receives $311 million of Abacha assets from United States, Jersey: attorney general

ABUJA (Reuters) - Nigeria has received more than $311 million of funds stolen from the country by former military ruler General Sani Abacha from the United States and Jersey, a statement from the African country’s attorney general said on Monday.

The United States and the British dependency of Jersey agreed with the Nigerian government in February to money that Abacha, who died in 1998, had stashed in their banks.
