“Judgement on the USD 480 million Abacha loot has been won and our Attorney-General, Malami (SAN) will be in the US next week to speak to the Department of Justice, USDOJ on the next steps for the return of that as well. The U.S is paying to Nigeria, not the other way round, abi?" he added.

Shehu was responding to claims that Buhari donated $500 million to the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign.
