President Muhammadu Buhari told Daily Telegraph that one of the biggest suspects in the ongoing probe of corruption in Nigeria live in their midst.
Buhari, who refused to mention any name, said this in an interview with the United Kingdom-based newspaper, Daily Telegraph.
He also spoke about Boko Haram, saying that his administration was ready to discuss with them on the missing Chibok girls.
“One of the biggest corruption suspects is in Britain, although, I am not going to name that person. But, Britain has earned our respect in the way it deals with these matters.
“Our only problem is that it seems to be too thorough and it takes too much time. If there are obvious cases, like bank accounts, infrastructure, houses and hotels, I would hope they could do it quicker, so that we can claim these things back promptly.”
On Boko Haram, the president said: “As long as we can estsblish the bonafides of the leadership of Boko Haram, we are prepared as a government to discuss with them on how to get the girls back. But, we have not established any evidence of a credible leadership.
