Also listed at the news conference by Mohammed were former PDP Financial Secretary who allegedly collected N600 million from the same source on the October 24, 2014.

"Dr Raymond Dokpesi, Chairman of DAAR Communications, on trial for taking N2.1 billion from the office of then NSA".

In a statement by CDHR president, Malachy Ugwummadu, the group argued that if Buhari's administration was serious with the anti-graft fight that it would have looked inward to include in its lists of alleged looters, names of former PDP chieftains who are now in APC.

Mohammed said: "They are in court and the records are available".

The Presidency on Friday cautioned Nigerians to be wary of the recent apology offered by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

"If the persons listed view it as name-dropping, they could sue for defamation; justification is the total defence to defamation".

"Dudafa Waripamo-Owei, former SSA to President Goodluck Jonathan, is also on trial over N830 million kept in accounts of four different companies", he said.

He said the PDP should follow Mr Mantu's example instead of indulging in name calling.




The Federal Government has released the names of some persons who allegedly looted the nation's treasury.

"It's like a robber admitting to stealing your auto and apologizing, but then saying he will keep the vehicle anyway".

The PDP made the remark in reaction to a statement credited to Tinubu, advising Nigerians against accepting the main opposition party.

The party asked the minister to name the names of its members against whom the federal government had secured convictions.

The Eagle Online reports that the list has the current PDP Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, who allegedly according to the list took N200 million on the 19 of February 2015 from the office of the NSA while former PDP financial secretary also allegedly took N600 million from the office of the NSA too.

We are not in doubt that the individuals he has mentioned will take their legitimate stride and pursue appropriate action in the court.

A former member of the Federal House of Representatives, Mr West Idahosa, has faulted the Federal Government's list of alleged looters.

"Another issue of moral and political significance is about the recent disclosure by United States investigators that the PDP government engaged in massive data theft that included the hacking of candidate Muhammadu Buhari's personal data before the last general elections".
