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

In an email to a correspondent of Newsmen on Friday, a spokesperson for the U.S. 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 Newsmen’s request for information on whether Abubakar is wanted in the U.S. in connection with any issue of money laundering.
