Africa has lost $140bn through corruption the decades since independence, Nigeria’s president, Olusegun Obasanjo has said.


The Western world must demonstrate practical commitment to assist us by repatriating monies that have been stolen from our treasuries and stashed away in their financial institutions.


Mr Obasanjo said that while the leaders were the main culprits, Western countries which had harboured the stolen loot should bear some responsibility.”
