Federal High Court in Lagos on Monday ordered President Muhammadu Buhari to provide the reports on the investigation carried out by the security and anti-corruption agencies, in order to prosecute the principal officers of the National Assembly responsible for stealing N481 billion from the 2018 budget. 

Justice Mohammed Idris further ordered Buhari to ensure the prosecution of the lawmakers over their alleged involvement in the theft of N481 billion from the 2016 budget.

The judge in his judgment specifically asked Buhari to “direct the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN), or the appropriate anti-corruption agencies to without delay commence prosecution of the indicted lawmakers”.

The court also ordered the president to “direct the publication of the report of the investigations by the security and anti-corruption bodies into the alleged padding of the 2016 budget”.

The court further held that Buhari was “expected to use his executive powers for the public good of Nigeria”.
