“All I will demand is return of assets. What would I do with apology? I need something tangible,” Buhari said less than 24 hours after the publication of a video which shows Cameron describing Nigeria and Afghanistan as the two most corrupt countries in the world.

“Unfortunately, repatriating stolen assets is tedious, time-consuming, and costly. It entails more than just signing of bilateral agreements.”
