The House of Representatives on Wednesday charged the federal government to return the £4.2million Ibori loot to Delta State.
The lawmakers in their statement noted that the funds were looted from Delta State and should be rightly returned to the state.
They further stated that funds are needed for the infrastructural development of the state.
The decision was reached after a motion of urgent public importance was sponsored by all the lawmakers from Delta State..
The House also asked the Federal Ministry of Finance to direct the Attorney General of Federation, Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, and give the House all particulars relating to the recovered money.
Recall that the Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of Federation, Abubakar Malami, while speaking on the development said President Muhammadu Buhari has directed that the loots be used for the completion of the second Niger Bridge, the Lagos-Ibadan expressway and the Abuja to Kano expressway.
