EFCC Chairman, Ibrahim Magu and the Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami are also said to have gone on the trip to Dubai, according to The Nation.

“Yes, the AGF and the EFCC chairman with some top officials of the anti-graft agency are in Dubai for a follow-up technical session on the Mutual Legal Assistance between Nigeria and the UAE,” a government source said.

“I can confirm the official trip and it is meant to recover looted funds,” the source added.

“The Federal Government team has met with those from the UAE on intelligence sharing, the list of those on EFCC radar, the number of highly-placed Nigerians with fat accounts in UAE and those with choice properties in Marina (Dubai), Bur Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Doha,” another source said.

“The success of the collaboration between the Federal Government team and the UAE Government will determine when EFCC will release the concessions on some of these PEPs. Very soon, we will unveil these ex-political office holders,” the source added.

Kaduna State Senator, Shehu Sani had recently revealed that Nigerian officials had stashed over $200 billion in Dubai alone.

The Nigerian government had, on January 19, 2016, signed a bilateral agreementwith the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to enable the extradition of corrupt officials hiding stolen funds in Dubai.
