FG assigns Malabu, Halliburton $1.280bn scam cases to special prosecutors

The Federal Government has asked some lawyers in its teams of special prosecutors to review the multi-billion naira Halliburton and Malabu scams.
It was learnt that the move was part of the Federal Government’s renewed zeal to re-open the cases.
The teams of prosecutors, sources confirmed to our correspondent on Wednesday, were expected to review the cases and advise the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami, on the way forward on the cases.

One of the sources said, “There are basic things expected from the prosecutors.
“The lawyers may advise that investigation should start afresh on both cases. They may recommend further investigations to fill in the gaps.
“They may even advise the AGF that there is sufficient evidence to proceed with the suspects named in the cases and recommend the appropriate charges against them.
“I cannot tell when the group of lawyers will be through with their review but I can assure you that work is going on it.”
