A petition has been opened by a Nigerian born UK citizen, Siji Otenigbagbe requesting the probe of Nigeria’s looted funds kept in the UK.

The Petition which is opened to all UK citizens and residents will be actionable once it reaches a collective signature of 10,000.

According to the petition, “The UK has served as a haven for stolen funds for corrupt Nigerian political officials and their associates since the early 60s. These funds are kept as pseudo assets, bank accounts & properties. In law, the receiver of stolen goods is as guilty as the thief. It is about time the UK does something.”

The petition however not only seeks to investigate into the looted funds but seeks the return of the funds to the Nigerian Government.

Below is the link to the petition's website.
