Saraki, other High Profile "Looters" in Soup as FG Gets Special Prosecutors

The Federal Government has set up 20 teams of prosecutors, comprising 80 lawyers, who will handle high profile criminal cases investigated by law enforcement agencies, including the EFCC.

Sources say each of the teams had four lawyers with a Senior Advocate of Nigeria as the leader.

The lawyers have been specially trained for the serious tasks of dealing with looters of our money.

According to report, the Prof. Itse Sagay-led Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption was very much involved in the training of the special prosecutors.

The training, which ended in June, lasted for over one month.

Sources in the Federal Ministry of Justice in Abuja confirmed to us that one of the teams of prosecutors had been assigned the forgery case recently instituted against Bukola Saraki, Ike Ekweremadu and others.

The new prosecuting team will fully take over the forgery case from the Director of Public Prosecutions of the Federation, Mohammed Diri, when the trial resumes on Monday.

We gathered that President Buhari is not happy with the slow pace of dealing with looters and this new team is to ensure justice is served for the good of Nigeria in good time.
