"We Don’t Have Criminal Case Against Atiku’ says the U. S.

Atiku Abubakar
Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar was declared winner of the Peoples Democratic Party's keenly contested primaries held over the weekend. However, even before he was declared the party flag bearer, there has been several reports that the former vice president can’t dare to enter the United States because he has pending lawsuit in the states.

The United States Department of Justice has recently denied having any record that indicates that Nigeria’s former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, has a pending lawsuit in the US.

In an email to our correspondent on Friday, a spokesperson for the US DOJ, Peter Carr said, “Thank you for reaching out to us. I have checked the public court records, and they do not show cases filed against a defendant named Atiku Abubakar.”

This was stated as a response to SUNDAY PUNCH’s request for information on whether Abubakar is wanted in the US in connection with any issue of money laundering.
