President Muhammadu Buhari says investigations being carried out on the oil sector have revealed countries and banks that have aided and abetted the people behind oil theft in Nigeria. He said this when a delegation of US congress members paid him a visit at the state house today August 3rd.
"We are getting cooperation from the international community, including information on ships that take crude oil from Nigeria and change direction, or pour their contents into other ships mid-stream. Some monies were paid to individual accounts. We're identifying the financial institutions and countries that are involved. I have been assured that when we get all our documents together, the United States and other countries will treat our case with sympathy,’’ he said.
