Lawmakers have asked the Federal Government to return the loot recovered from former Delta State Governor, James Ibori by the UK government, to the state government.
The lawmakers noted that the funds were stolen from Delta State and as such should rightly be returned for the infrastructural development of the state.
This follows comments from the attorney General of the federation, Malami as he noted that the loot will not be returned to Delta State but to the Federal Government because, Ibori broke a federal law and not a state law.
It was revealed that the total money recovered is £6.2 million and not £4.2 million as widely reported. The resolution was reached after a motion of urgent public importance which was sponsored by all the lawmakers from Delta state.
