“These funds were however diverted to personal use, including the purchase of luxury properties and foreign citizenship,” victims said in a January 21, 2021, petition to federal authorities.
Warrants of arrest separately issued for them by the Lagos Division of the Federal High Court said they are wanted for obtaining money under false pretence and stealing.
