NHRC SEEKS U.S ASSISTANCE ON MONEY LAUNDERING, ARMS IMPORT

The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has sought the assistance of the United States government in halting money laundering and illegal importation of arms and ammunitions into the country.

NHRC’s Executive Secretary, Prof. Bem Angwe, said this while a 10-member U.S delegation on defense and security visited him in his office in Abuja, Tuesday.

Angwe said “economic terrorists” and the activities of Boko Haram were the nation’s major challenges.

He said those who stashed away stolen public funds in foreign bank accounts belong to the class of “economic terrorists” that the U.S government must assist Nigeria to defeat.

Angwe regretted that most European countries, that readily accept stolen funds from Nigeria, were aiding people in looting funds that could have been used to improve dying infrastructures in the country.
