The Federal Government has replied the letter written by human rights lawyer, Femi Falana demanding for the recovery of $200bn.

Falana had earlier asked the government to focus on recovering the looted funds instead of requesting for a loan.

Punch reports that the Minister of Finance, Mrs. Kemi Adeosun, in the letter, said the government was attending to the lawyer’s advice.

Adeosun, in a letter dated May 6, 2016, with reference number F/LEG/103016/15, issued by the Director, Legal Services, Mrs. Rhona N. Dimude, said “I am directed to acknowledge receipt of your letter dated February 12, 2016 on the above mentioned subject and to inform you that the matter is receiving attention.

“Please accept the warm regards of the honourable minister.”

Femi Falana (SAN) also threatened to sue the Muhammadu Buhari-led administration if it goes ahead with its plan to borrow to finance the 2016 budget.

The human rights lawyer also filed a suit at a Federal High Court in Abuja asking the court to stop the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) from using the Dollar as legal tender in Nigeria.
