Yakubu Gowon looted ‘half’ of Nigeria’s Central Bank and moved to London - UK Lawmaker

Yakubu Gowon looted ‘half’ of Nigeria’s Central Bank and moved to London - UK Lawmaker (Updated: 1 year ago)


A member of the United Kingdom Parliament on Monday said former Nigerian leader Yakubu Gowon fleeced the country for half of what its central bank was worth before relocating to London.

Tom Tugendhat, chairperson of the Foreign Affairs Select Committee representing Tonbridge and Malling, said it was time to start sanctioning those responsible for Nigeria’s endemic theft and poverty.

It is a tragedy that we are all witnessing. The pressure this time is not foreign colonialism, the pressure instead is corruption, violence and attempts to control.

“We need to call out corruption. We need to use powers we have in this country to stop those who are profiting.

“Some people would remember when General Gowon left Nigeria with half of the central bank, or so it was said, and moved to London,” Mr. Tugendhat said on the floor of the parliament Monday.

UK parliamentarians debated a petition on Monday over the brutal crackdown of Nigerian Army on #EndSARS protesters.

The lawmakers agreed that members of President Muhammadu Buhari and the military should be targeted for economic deprivation and also prevented from entering the UK.
